Left Bank Books welcomes Missouri children's author Peggy Archer for a Celebrity Storytime reading of her new picture book, A Hippy-Hoppy Toad!
A Hippy-Hoppy Toad is a rollicking read-aloud featuring a very tiny toad who gets displaced as animals—and humans—brush past him on the road. It’s hard to be a tiny toad minding your own business on a twig. First a bird pecks at him…. Then a bee buzzes…. Then a dog barks…and so on. And each time the toad is surprised by a buzz or a woof (or the toe of a sneaker!), he hops to a new location farther down the road. With fun sounds, clever rhymes, and an irresistible rhythm, this is the perfect story for sharing one-on-one or in a group.
“[Peggy Archer and Anne Wilsdorf] capture both the comedy and peril of the little toad’s adventures in this wonderful read-aloud.” —The Wall Street Journal
