This book “Toad Makes A Road” by Phil Roxbee Cox was one of my favorites when I was little. I read this book to my younger brother. He really liked the animals and the big trucks.

Preschool kids today liked this book. They liked finding the duck on each page more than the book itself. They liked the rhyming words. Several books in this little series by Usborne books.
This is one in a series of "easy-to-read" phonic's/rhyming books put out by Usborne. They are cute and simple for children to build reading confidence!

Toad makes a road is a wonderful book for beginner readers. The words rhyme and it's somewhat predictable. Also, it has very cute pictures.
