Teeny Tiny Toady by Jill Esbaum


Teeny Tiny Toady by Jill Esbaum

When a giant hand scoops up her mama and puts her in a pail, a terrified tiny toad named Teeny hops faster than she ever did in her life. Mama s stuck inside a bucket! Help me get her out! she begs her big, clumsy brothers. Don t you worry, kid. We ll save her! they promise, bumbling and stumbling and jumbling out the door. But as the boys rush headlong to the rescue, pushing their little sister aside, it becomes clear: brawn isn't always better than brains and the smallest of the family may just be the smartest one of all. Written in lilting verse, this teeny book packs in humor, emotion, and triumphant girl power.
