daughter and I love reading this book. The illustrations are colorful
and bring a smile to your face. The writing is descriptive, yet
at an age appropriate level. I think we all need to have a Moon
Lake to visit, as well as the positive attitude of Taryn. I know
my Daughter and I will enjoy this book for years to come. We look
forward to more books like Taryn Toad Tosses Pebbles!"

will find this book to be a valuable source. Teaching kids to love
themselves, to realize their basic worth, and to respect the needs
and feelings of others is so critical. "Taryn Toad Tosses Pebbles"
could fit nicely in our first grade unit on self-concept.
educational tool! Every psychologist should have one! The book gives
great encouragement for self-esteem, positive attitude, and positive
goals. Teachers and psychologists could use this self-help tool
in a classroom, individually, or in counseling respectively. Children
are mesmerized by the illustrations and enjoy learning from the
positive attributes of the story and characters."

kids loved this book!
am writing this review as a mother of three young children. This
book has helped so much with them. It's not only a tool I can use
everyday, but also a lifetime tool that teaches my children to value
themselves. What an attitude adjustment! Every school/ preschool
should utilize the importance of this message. Both of my boys and
my daughter love the characters and Taryn Toad is such a positive
model for children.
you, Gabrielle for enriching our lives and letting children be children
Toad Tosses Pebbles", what a fun and thoughtful children's book.
illustrations are just terrific. Some of the little black and white
side bar drawings are as cute as the big four color ones. Taryn
couldn't be cuter.
simple truth is, we all could use a visit to Woodyland and a day
on Moon Lake. Lets all lighten up & toss a few pebbles!
