Did momma set up the toad so she would get business for her towtruck? Inuiring minds want to know Toad on the frog Ha Just kidding There's a bear riding a bike and once everyone freaked out The bear said Skedaddle Get out of the road before you get run over Puff Scream What is your Mom gonna say? Oh No There's a Toad on the Road And then there is a Vole in a Van Did you like the book? YesOnce there was his Mom a toad on the road Is there anything you liked best about the book Yes the mother And the heart at the end So much fun for little ones and language learners Rhyme repetition foreshadowing in the illustrations big loud onomatopoeia Cute if a little repetitive I suppose that's the point though If you're children like playing in the road Read this to them and hope they make the metaphoric leap from a baby toad to themselves Alternatively they might just attempt to save every toad that stumbles into the street which might be counterproductive Cute story Great illustrations and rhyming text will appeal to preschoolers especially Adorable book for preschoolers Repetitive text lets little ones read with you Almost as good as Shaskan's A Dog Is a Dog which makes me happy Haha The illustrations crack me up and there's a fun opportunity for sound effects Really want to try this one out at storytime This cute and catchy story combines three great elements vehicles physical comedy and a repeating storyline And wow is my son Luke ever obsessed with itA little toad plays on the road but Oh no Oh no we can see the silhouette of a vehicle approaching Who's that coming down the road? The text asks and the child tries to guess the vehicle based on the shape of the silhouette An additional phonemic clue ie Oh yikes Oh yikes It's a will encourage some kids to guess the vehicle as you turn the page to where its revealed Bear on a bike The vehicle swerves to avoid harming the toad SKID SCREECH BANG and is trashed but everyone is fine After a few cycles of this the last vehicle to arrive is a truck driven by the toad's mother who finally yanks the little toad off the roadFunny and predictable this is a truly wonderful book for a child who benefits from interactive opportunities physical humor sound effects and a strong repeating structure to attend to a book Side bonus? A safety message about staying out of roadways I review books for children from the perspective of a parent of kids with autism The review above is from a longer blog post about the best new books of 2017 Really cute for preschoolers especially when they are old enough to use the context clues to guess the next vehicle coming down the road
