    I received Because I Stubbed My Toe from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley, Shawn Byous, and Capstone Young Readers. My five year old daughter and I really enjoyed reading this book about a boy who set off a crazy chain of events just by stubbing his toe....

    Shawn Byous has come up with a truly cute book. Honestly, it reminded me of Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo but with a more up to date voice. Because the young boy stubs his toe a myriad of hysterical things happen. I think my favorite was the elephants escaping from the zoo. It woul...

    When a boy stubs his toe, he sets off a hilarious chain of events that will no doubt leave from kids and adults laughing right up to the deliciously unexpected ending. The resulting chaos builds in silliness as the novel progresses: a dropped ice cream cone sends a biker of the road, t...

    My children and I sat down to review this book as our read-aloud, and we laughed the whole time. The story was funny and the illustrations were hilarious. To think that one stubbed toe could set off a chain of events like that was too cute for words. And what a perfectly scrumptious en...

    I love this book, and I think it was simple and very funny! It is a great example of cause and effect, and I love how the story went full circle. This book is a fresh take on a oft-used story method, and I think it was so well done, and I loved the illustrations. I am happy to see this...

    This was a really cute children's book. It was about a little boy who stubbed his toe and in doing so started off a whole chain of events that eventually ended with a ton of ice cream landing in his bedroom window. I read this story to my 8yr old and 2yr old and they both really enjoye...

    After a boy stubbed his toe one morning, a series of outrageous events happens. In the end he is left happy when ice cream comes flying through his window due to stubbing his toe. A problem with this story is that it is made of one giant sentence fragment. There is no real moral to the...

    Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC! Yes, I'm a big kid at heart! I loved this book!! and when my son gets up from his nap, I'm going to read it with him too! Who would have thought that such chaos could be caused simply by stubbing your toe? It shows how something so small and...

    A cause-and-effect book that keeps building on the reactions. Definite humor to follow along the story and see more told within the pictures than the very simple, basic words. The ending made me smile. Way to see the positive! 7/29/15 Used in a Hodge-Podge theme. I had a small group...

    Awesome! One of the best children books I've read lately. Simply love the illustrations and remind me of what I would find in cartoons and graphic novels. It could easily be used to show younger students cause and effect and will remind older readers of the 'If you give a mouse...' ser...

    A humorous book to teach children cause-and-effect. The main character stubs his toe, which scares the dog, who scares the cat, who jumps out the window onto an unsuspecting passer-by, who drops her ice cream causing a biker to crash...etc., etc., etc. However, I was delightfully surpr...

    Netgalley ARC A silly, entertaining story for children (and adults since I thoroughly enjoyed it) about a boy who stubs his toe and the events that follow. A truly gut-busting display of cause and effect is shown by the incidents that occur all the way to the end. The artwork was ...

    This book was an excellent choice if you wanted to explain to young ones about butterfly effect. :D Totally entertaining and funny. I couldn't help myself not to giggle when bouncing from one page to another. I'd certainly recommended this! And buy one for myself! A must have. Th...

    This book shares a very similar plot with "Slam!: A Tale of Consequences" by Adam Stower because it a story of cause and effect. The difference is that in this book the main character is aware of what is going on around him and the end consequence is a pretty nice one for him. The boy ...

    Because I Stubbed My Toe by Shawn Byous is a picturebook that made me very happy. The story starts with a young boy stubbing his toe, which sets off a chain reaction of events with a surprising ending. The events that transpire are wacky and the illustrations are wonderful. A fun and e...

    If your students need a smile, this is a great book to read. The story, narrated in first person, opens as a young boy stubs his toe. The impact of his toe shook the chair noisily and scared the dog. The dog scared the cat and the cat jumped out of the window. It landed on the head of ...

    This book was so much fun! This poor boy wakes up and stubs his toe! This sets off a chain of events that effects a lot of people, but in the end something good comes out of it. It's a great way to show cause and effect with humor. It was very fast, quick and easy. All my readers had n...

    We received this book via NetGalley. Loved the chain of events that happens from the young boy who stubs his toe. The illustrations are greatly done to where it keeps you laughing not only at the story but the pictures. It is great for 1st graders because it teaches cause and effects....

    I received Because I Stubbed My Toe from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley, Shawn Byous, and Capstone Young Readers. My five year old daughter and I really enjoyed reading this book about a boy who set off a crazy chain of events just by stubbing his toe....

    Shawn Byous has come up with a truly cute book. Honestly, it reminded me of Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo but with a more up to date voice. Because the young boy stubs his toe a myriad of hysterical things happen. I think my favorite was the elephants escaping from the zoo. It woul...

    When a boy stubs his toe, he sets off a hilarious chain of events that will no doubt leave from kids and adults laughing right up to the deliciously unexpected ending. The resulting chaos builds in silliness as the novel progresses: a dropped ice cream cone sends a biker of the road, t...

    My children and I sat down to review this book as our read-aloud, and we laughed the whole time. The story was funny and the illustrations were hilarious. To think that one stubbed toe could set off a chain of events like that was too cute for words. And what a perfectly scrumptious en...

    I love this book, and I think it was simple and very funny! It is a great example of cause and effect, and I love how the story went full circle. This book is a fresh take on a oft-used story method, and I think it was so well done, and I loved the illustrations. I am happy to see this...

    This was a really cute children's book. It was about a little boy who stubbed his toe and in doing so started off a whole chain of events that eventually ended with a ton of ice cream landing in his bedroom window. I read this story to my 8yr old and 2yr old and they both really enjoye...

    After a boy stubbed his toe one morning, a series of outrageous events happens. In the end he is left happy when ice cream comes flying through his window due to stubbing his toe. A problem with this story is that it is made of one giant sentence fragment. There is no real moral to the...

    Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC! Yes, I'm a big kid at heart! I loved this book!! and when my son gets up from his nap, I'm going to read it with him too! Who would have thought that such chaos could be caused simply by stubbing your toe? It shows how something so small and...

    A cause-and-effect book that keeps building on the reactions. Definite humor to follow along the story and see more told within the pictures than the very simple, basic words. The ending made me smile. Way to see the positive! 7/29/15 Used in a Hodge-Podge theme. I had a small group...

    Awesome! One of the best children books I've read lately. Simply love the illustrations and remind me of what I would find in cartoons and graphic novels. It could easily be used to show younger students cause and effect and will remind older readers of the 'If you give a mouse...' ser...

    A humorous book to teach children cause-and-effect. The main character stubs his toe, which scares the dog, who scares the cat, who jumps out the window onto an unsuspecting passer-by, who drops her ice cream causing a biker to crash...etc., etc., etc. However, I was delightfully surpr...

    Netgalley ARC A silly, entertaining story for children (and adults since I thoroughly enjoyed it) about a boy who stubs his toe and the events that follow. A truly gut-busting display of cause and effect is shown by the incidents that occur all the way to the end. The artwork was ...

    This book was an excellent choice if you wanted to explain to young ones about butterfly effect. :D Totally entertaining and funny. I couldn't help myself not to giggle when bouncing from one page to another. I'd certainly recommended this! And buy one for myself! A must have. Th...

    Bright and colorful book about how one thing leads to another and how sometimes what seems like a bad thing can lead to a very good one. I enjoyed how the faded backgrounds highlight the intense colors of the action. I also appreciated the bold verbs in each phrase. A fun book for both...

    Because I Stubbed My Toe by Shawn Byous is a nominee for the 15-16 South Carolina Picture Book Award. Because I Stubbed My Toe is sure to be a hit with young readers who enjoy Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie books. This charming book shows the chaos that erupts bec...

    This book was so much fun! This poor boy wakes up and stubs his toe! This sets off a chain of events that effects a lot of people, but in the end something good comes out of it. It's a great way to show cause and effect with humor. It was very fast, quick and easy. All my readers had n...

    We received this book via NetGalley. Loved the chain of events that happens from the young boy who stubs his toe. The illustrations are greatly done to where it keeps you laughing not only at the story but the pictures. It is great for 1st graders because it teaches cause and effects....

    I received Because I Stubbed My Toe from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley, Shawn Byous, and Capstone Young Readers. My five year old daughter and I really enjoyed reading this book about a boy who set off a crazy chain of events just by stubbing his toe....

    Shawn Byous has come up with a truly cute book. Honestly, it reminded me of Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo but with a more up to date voice. Because the young boy stubs his toe a myriad of hysterical things happen. I think my favorite was the elephants escaping from the zoo. It woul...

    When a boy stubs his toe, he sets off a hilarious chain of events that will no doubt leave from kids and adults laughing right up to the deliciously unexpected ending. The resulting chaos builds in silliness as the novel progresses: a dropped ice cream cone sends a biker of the road, t...

    My children and I sat down to review this book as our read-aloud, and we laughed the whole time. The story was funny and the illustrations were hilarious. To think that one stubbed toe could set off a chain of events like that was too cute for words. And what a perfectly scrumptious en...

    I love this book, and I think it was simple and very funny! It is a great example of cause and effect, and I love how the story went full circle. This book is a fresh take on a oft-used story method, and I think it was so well done, and I loved the illustrations. I am happy to see this...

    This was a really cute children's book. It was about a little boy who stubbed his toe and in doing so started off a whole chain of events that eventually ended with a ton of ice cream landing in his bedroom window. I read this story to my 8yr old and 2yr old and they both really enjoye...

    After a boy stubbed his toe one morning, a series of outrageous events happens. In the end he is left happy when ice cream comes flying through his window due to stubbing his toe. A problem with this story is that it is made of one giant sentence fragment. There is no real moral to the...

    A cause-and-effect book that keeps building on the reactions. Definite humor to follow along the story and see more told within the pictures than the very simple, basic words. The ending made me smile. Way to see the positive! 7/29/15 Used in a Hodge-Podge theme. I had a small group...

    Awesome! One of the best children books I've read lately. Simply love the illustrations and remind me of what I would find in cartoons and graphic novels. It could easily be used to show younger students cause and effect and will remind older readers of the 'If you give a mouse...' ser...

    A humorous book to teach children cause-and-effect. The main character stubs his toe, which scares the dog, who scares the cat, who jumps out the window onto an unsuspecting passer-by, who drops her ice cream causing a biker to crash...etc., etc., etc. However, I was delightfully surpr...

    Netgalley ARC A silly, entertaining story for children (and adults since I thoroughly enjoyed it) about a boy who stubs his toe and the events that follow. A truly gut-busting display of cause and effect is shown by the incidents that occur all the way to the end. The artwork was ...

    This book was an excellent choice if you wanted to explain to young ones about butterfly effect. :D Totally entertaining and funny. I couldn't help myself not to giggle when bouncing from one page to another. I'd certainly recommended this! And buy one for myself! A must have. Th...

    Bright and colorful book about how one thing leads to another and how sometimes what seems like a bad thing can lead to a very good one. I enjoyed how the faded backgrounds highlight the intense colors of the action. I also appreciated the bold verbs in each phrase. A fun book for both...

    Because I Stubbed My Toe is a one sentence book. A series of events occurs when a young boy stubs his toe. The pictures in this book are very bright and visually appealing for the young students. I would say it is a book for students just learning to read. It is also a good book to rea...

    This book shares a very similar plot with "Slam!: A Tale of Consequences" by Adam Stower because it a story of cause and effect. The difference is that in this book the main character is aware of what is going on around him and the end consequence is a pretty nice one for him. The boy ...

    My children and I sat down to review this book as our read-aloud, and we laughed the whole time. The story was funny and the illustrations were hilarious. To think that one stubbed toe could set off a chain of events like that was too cute for words. And what a perfectly scrumptious en...

    I love this book, and I think it was simple and very funny! It is a great example of cause and effect, and I love how the story went full circle. This book is a fresh take on a oft-used story method, and I think it was so well done, and I loved the illustrations. I am happy to see this...

    This was a really cute children's book. It was about a little boy who stubbed his toe and in doing so started off a whole chain of events that eventually ended with a ton of ice cream landing in his bedroom window. I read this story to my 8yr old and 2yr old and they both really enjoye...

    This book shares a very similar plot with "Slam!: A Tale of Consequences" by Adam Stower because it a story of cause and effect. The difference is that in this book the main character is aware of what is going on around him and the end consequence is a pretty nice one for him. The boy ...

    If your students need a smile, this is a great book to read. The story, narrated in first person, opens as a young boy stubs his toe. The impact of his toe shook the chair noisily and scared the dog. The dog scared the cat and the cat jumped out of the window. It landed on the head of ...

    We received this book via NetGalley. Loved the chain of events that happens from the young boy who stubs his toe. The illustrations are greatly done to where it keeps you laughing not only at the story but the pictures. It is great for 1st graders because it teaches cause and effects....

    I received Because I Stubbed My Toe from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley, Shawn Byous, and Capstone Young Readers. My five year old daughter and I really enjoyed reading this book about a boy who set off a crazy chain of events just by stubbing his toe....

    After a boy stubbed his toe one morning, a series of outrageous events happens. In the end he is left happy when ice cream comes flying through his window due to stubbing his toe. A problem with this story is that it is made of one giant sentence fragment. There is no real moral to the...

    Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC! Yes, I'm a big kid at heart! I loved this book!! and when my son gets up from his nap, I'm going to read it with him too! Who would have thought that such chaos could be caused simply by stubbing your toe? It shows how something so small and...

    A cause-and-effect book that keeps building on the reactions. Definite humor to follow along the story and see more told within the pictures than the very simple, basic words. The ending made me smile. Way to see the positive! 7/29/15 Used in a Hodge-Podge theme. I had a small group...

    Awesome! One of the best children books I've read lately. Simply love the illustrations and remind me of what I would find in cartoons and graphic novels. It could easily be used to show younger students cause and effect and will remind older readers of the 'If you give a mouse...' ser...

    A humorous book to teach children cause-and-effect. The main character stubs his toe, which scares the dog, who scares the cat, who jumps out the window onto an unsuspecting passer-by, who drops her ice cream causing a biker to crash...etc., etc., etc. However, I was delightfully surpr...

    Netgalley ARC A silly, entertaining story for children (and adults since I thoroughly enjoyed it) about a boy who stubs his toe and the events that follow. A truly gut-busting display of cause and effect is shown by the incidents that occur all the way to the end. The artwork was ...

    This book was an excellent choice if you wanted to explain to young ones about butterfly effect. :D Totally entertaining and funny. I couldn't help myself not to giggle when bouncing from one page to another. I'd certainly recommended this! And buy one for myself! A must have. Th...

    Bright and colorful book about how one thing leads to another and how sometimes what seems like a bad thing can lead to a very good one. I enjoyed how the faded backgrounds highlight the intense colors of the action. I also appreciated the bold verbs in each phrase. A fun book for both...

    Because I Stubbed My Toe is a one sentence book. A series of events occurs when a young boy stubs his toe. The pictures in this book are very bright and visually appealing for the young students. I would say it is a book for students just learning to read. It is also a good book to rea...
