The Toad is the next installment of the Disgusting Critter series. Hilarious illustrated non-fiction about toads perfect for beginning readers. Humorous text and funny illustrations will leave young readers croaking for more.
Here is one of the Mr. Toads that lives near us
I love toads! We have a bunch in our yard/ garden and one that lives under our propane tank outside the house. I call them all 'Mr. Toad'.

Anyway! I was so excited to get this book for review. I have read The Spider in this Disgusting Critters series and really liked it- same goes for The Toad. In this book you get a lot of great information about toads and the books are meant to teach kids about 'gross' critters and show that they can actually be beneficial.  And toad are great, they eat bugs and they show that your yard is healthy and I love seeing them around.

The book is a a great learning tool for both kids and adults and the illustrations are adorable and funny. I love that the toads talk to you as you are reading about them and how they live/help the world. It was a very cute book.
