    1 thought on “Toot & Puddle: You Are My Sunshine”

    1. Oh so perfect for me. Love the art, the friendship, as always. In fact, I picked this up based just on the series and title, as "You are my Sunshine" is one of my favorite old songs. But then I saw it was about moping, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see if anything 'cured' Toot. Well, thankfully, nothing really did.Sometimes we just feel blue, and sometimes the oddest things can pivot us out of our funk thank you Holly Hobbie for sensitively acknowledging that truth!

    2. From Kirkus ReviewsPuddle is concerned about his good friend, Toot, who has a severe case of the doldrums. While recognizing that "everybody mopes sometimes," Puddle still wants to cheer up his buddy, attempting everything from five-berry cobbler to a wild boat ride down the rapids. Yet even an impromptu party with their friends fails to elicit any excitement from the melancholy pig. Only the passing of time and a raging thunderstorm finally alter Toot's dolorous mood. Hobbie deftly explores the [...]

    3. How refreshing to find a friendship book where friends' actions aren't always the cure-all needed to cheer you up. Sometimes it's friends leaving you alone to weather your own storms, and then being there for you afterward. This is a true life lesson that I learned later in life. Deep stuff for a picture book, yet the watercolors are wholly sunny and charming. Puddle and Tulip are very worried when normally upbeat Toot gets down in the dumps, and they try just about everything they can to cheer [...]

    4. It was a sunny day in Woodcock Pocket, Puddle was in a good mood,but Toot was moping. Puddle tried to cheer him up. Puddle took him on an adventure down the rapids,fed Toot five-berry cobbler, and arranged to play hide and seek with his friends, but Toot was still moping. Finally, a storm came in and after it passed, Toot was happy again. All it took was a little bit of rain. Toot and Puddle were depicted as two cute little pigs. The story is adorable and would be a great book at story time with [...]

    5. This is one kids book that adults could greatly benefit from. The underlying themes (companionship in the midst of a low time, friendly attempts that don't resolve the problem, and accepting someone when they're not quite themselves) don't get so serious that Hobbie can deliver joy through her cast of pigs and skillful illustrations (see the 2-page spreads near the end of the book of Toot out in a rainstorm). Nicely depicts the difficult and necessary task of being glad to be with someone as the [...]

    6. Puddle and Tulip are very worried when normally upbeat Toot gets down in the dumps, and they try just about everything they can to cheer him up. In the end, however, it comes down to Toot needing to come out of his funk on his own -- but maybe his friends helped more than they thought.I probably would hesitate to pick this one for to read for a large group again, because I felt that some of the illustrations and story just weren't coming across to some of the kids. But I really love this story a [...]

    7. How refreshing to find a friendship book where friends' actions aren't always the cure-all needed to cheer you up: sometimes it's friends leaving you alone to weather your own storms, then being there for you afterward. Deep stuff for a picture book, yet the watercolors are wholly sunny and charming. How have I not read any Toot and Puddle books before? I love when animals have their own little lives out in the woods. Maybe they know Winnie-the-Pooh.

    8. Why haven't I seen these earlier? My kids & I fell in love w/ Toot & Puddle. Toot is very adenturous & always on the go to journey out in the world while Puddle is very happy adventuring at home. It is great to see the dynamics of the two of them together enjoying both together and apart. A great book for us here at our house b/c we have these same dynamics going on with all of us and our temperments / needs.

    9. Written and illustrated by Holly Hobbie (Denise Holly Ulinskas). Lovely watercolor illustrations, they can stand alone as wonderful framed pictures in a child's room. Toot is moping and Puddle tries many thing to cheer Toot up. Age Range: 3 - 6 yearsGrade Level: Preschool - 1Lexile Measure: AD260L (adult directed)Series: Toot & Puddle (Book 3)

    10. These books are worth the read just for the illustrations. They are always marvelous. That being said, I wasn't crazy about the story for this one. It was great for an adult or an older child but it was hard for my 3 and 5 yr old to understand what was wrong with Toot. He was depressed without a reason and Puddle just couldn't cheer him up; He had to snap out of it himself. We own it and my kids never ask to read this one.

    11. Toot and Puddle are best of friends, they are opposites but love one another like best friends should. In this adventour Toot is 'blue' and mops around. Puddle does everything he can think of to make his friend happy. But Toot seems to just be 'blue' for no real reason but then they figure out what makes the blues lift and they are all happy once again. And in the end Toot is thankful for his friendship. A sweet book of two friends.

    12. This is a sweet story about Toot and Puddle and their enduring friendship. Dispute a mudslide and an incredible rainstorm, Puddle saves the day with a lovely dinner and Toot's favorite desert, to make up for having a bad day. With beautiful illustrations this is a charming story anyone would love to read to read.

    13. This book was a little bit more difficult of a read. It was not a tough book, but it was aimed for such young readers that it was a little difficult. If it was being read at bedtime it could be a really fun read to have with a young child. I probably would not use this book in anything higher than a kindergarten or first grade classroom.

    14. In this story, Toot is sad, and Puddle does a multitude of things to help Toot feel better. Nothing seems to help until a rainstorm happens and then the sun comes out. Toot is then back to his happy self. This book can help students who may be having a bad day or time in their lives, providing trust in the future and appreciating the care and support from friendships.

    15. I SO know how he is feeling, Toot, in this book. I felt the same way when I moved to always sunny San Diego. We all need a little storm in our life now and then to clear the air and make the world seem "crisp and new". I love the original Toot & Puddle books, and this one is probably one of my favorites.

    16. Toot is sad. Poodle and his other friends try to cheer him up. Eventually a thunderstorm does the actual cheering.I like that Toot's friends try to cheer him up. Some of the things even work for awhile. But ultimately other factors solve the problem, rather randomly.

    17. So cute! A little advanced for my just-turned two year old, but it would be great for a 3 or 4 year old. Toot "mopes" and Puddle tries everything to cheer him upbut sometimes you just have to come out of it on your own.

    18. This sweet book tells the story of two friends, one of which is in a funk. It shows that sometimes our moods are not because of what is happening around us, but sometimes our mood is down and only time can help. I love the soft illustrations and sweet message of this story.

    19. I really enjoy the cartoon and didn't realize it came from a book series. I usually don't like pig characters, but these two are the exception. I enjoy that they live together in harmony and like to travel.

    20. I love this book. It teaches us that sometimes people are sad just because they are sad, and there's not a lot others can do about itd that's okay. The pictures are wonderfulI my favorite is when toot is looking in the mirror. "maybe I'm too pink"

    21. Reason why I love children literature. They're perfectly honest, give great advice and can light up my day in a second. In this one, a piglet Toot is just sad, he doesn’t know why, but he just is. Mopping around and feeling the blues. It's a perfect little story book.

    22. Everyone feels a little down now and again. Here's a story about being a friend to someone who is sad. As usual the illustrations are exquisite and make me want to linger for long stretches before turning the page. I love these books!

    23. I was speechless after the ending the first time I read this sweet story. Maybe it means more to me than others but, man, it just hit me right in the heart. LOVE this book :)

    24. The ideal book for melancholy days. It is so truemetimes, despite every effort made by well-intentioned friends, a person needs a "thunderstorm" to help sort out his or her feelings.
