What Some Of Our Parents Say
I have to tell you, my son Liam is mad about Toby and his friends. We have all four of the books and he now knows every detail of each story. The fact that Toby is a local is awesome because dad also goes to Cape Town on business sometimes, and he can say hello to Toby. Our last trip to Knysna was highlighted by the fact that we saw a little tug boat called 'Goliath', "Hey dad that must be Toby's little brother", was the comment from the back of the car. So from the Teague boys, a very big thank you Leo, for an awesome friend - Toby. Claude Teague
Joshua (age 6) says he likes the story, the fact that Toby was helpful and went out to help someone even though he's only little. He likes the way the pictures are done, he likes the colours! He says he learnt that you should never go out without an adult! Hannah (age 3) says she likes the pictures too! She really likes Toby and thinks he's a brave boat - but he should have listened the first time, then he would not have had a problem. Mom thinks it's a lovely story and written with the child in mind. The language is simple and age appropriate, the lessons real to life, and something all children, regardless of age, can take to heart. My children really enjoy this book, and "read" it to each other. The style of the book is also great, with a good, large, easy to read font, which is ideal for beginner readers too. The illustrations lend themselves to discussions, and over and above the life lesson to be learnt, the story has a lot of other information too. MikeGull helps a lot in this respect! I think that all the characters in the story have personality, and the children can relate to each one. Well done, Leo!! Your work is commendable, and you have made a mark on my children's lives, as I'm sure on many others too. I look forward to reading many more Toby stories with my children!! Cindey Ferreira
