Tad was small.
Smaller than her tadsisters.
Smaller than her tadbrothers.
Tad was the smallest almost-a-frog in the whole, wide pond.


Soon, all her tadsiblings outgrow the nest and swim to other parts of the pond, leaving poor Tad by her lonesome. That’s until … Big Blub shows up!

Goodnight Already! artist Benji Davies creates a beautiful story about a small tadpole who must grow her hind legs, breathe through her gills, and learn how to face things that are sometimes scary. Tad will leave young readers rooting her on as she discovers that sometimes the mightiest creature comes in the smallest package.

In this charming story, a little tadpole named Tad is a late bloomer. Her brothers and sisters morph into frogs sooner than she does. She is all alone and afraid of Big Blub, a big, nasty fish at the ­bottom of the pond. However, Tad puts self-­confidence into practice and she doesn’t give up, because she knows she is strong and clever. When she finally comes face-to-face with Big Blub, Tad gathers her courage and swims faster than ever. She swims to the top of the pond to escape and climbs onto a rock. It is then that Tad realizes she finally lost her tail. This is a title that teaches readers to accept themselves, never give up, and to stand up to bullies. The detailed illustrations are colorful and bright. Highly recommended for purchase. This is a story about resilience that would work in classrooms or public library collections.
