Tom the Toad is in search of a home after living underground for the winter. He finds a beautiful garden, but encounters a lot of obstacles while trying to find the perfect spot to call home. Take the journey with Tom and learn a little along the way about how important these tiny and overlooked creatures are in a healthy garden or ecosystem. Toads and other amphibians are incredibly sensitive to toxins in the environment, so to find them living in a garden or at your local pond is a treasure! While much of the focus is on the importance of bees (and rightfully so), we should not overlook the importance of these other tiny, warty creatures!
