What's Tad and Dad About

Publisher Summary

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?
