about

Caldecott Honor winner David Ezra Stein’s expressive tale about familial love is full of funny, tender family dynamics that will evoke nods of recognition and lots of laughs.
 
Tad the tadpole loves spending every minute with his awesome dad, whether they’re swimming together, catching flies, or sleeping. But now little Tad is getting bigger. He’s growing new limbs and jumping to new heights. His dad is proud, but when Tad’s accomplishments carry over into nighttime—bringing lots of wiggling, croaking, and kicking in his sleep—their lily pad starts feeling mighty crowded! When Tad finally realizes it might be time for a bed of his own, will Dad be ready?

Editorial Reviews

“Comically expressive, deftly conveying the energy of the wee frog and the exasperation of his dad with thick black strokes filled with swampy watercolor washes in mixed layouts ranging from spreads to cleverly focused vignettes. Children will laugh at Tad’s antics while parents will sympathize with father frog’s disturbed sleep. A wonderful bedtime or froggy-themed storytime read.”—School Library Journal  “Parents everywhere, especially those with night-wandering, bed-sharing toddlers, will laugh with grim identification. . . . Little ones will chuckle at Tad’s enthusiasm and Dad’s growing exhaustion. . . . Stein uses color to great effect to show the lap-listener that this little gem is both a celebration of the father-child relationship and a good-night book. . . . Like every good go-to-sleep book, this one will hold up to many repeat readings.”—The Horn Book “A humorous treatment of a common bedtime problem. Brilliant watercolors accented with Crayola zing with energy in splashy two page spreads. The green amphibian’s round pink mouth humorously ‘BUURRPPs’ with noise. Dad’s comical face expresses gloom, dismay, and pride over Tad’s antics. Parents will recognize the bleary-eyed adult’s eyes when he says, ‘Is it morning already?’”—Booklist “Parents faced with a child who has trouble staying in his or her own bed will relate to Dad’s exasperation and chuckle at Tad’s persistence. Kids will enjoy Tad’s enthusiasm and obvious adoration of his father. Caldecott honoree Stein makes another splash with this charming duo.”—Kirkus Reviews
