Inspired by Weiner's own experience with his son, Toad Catchers’ Creek tells the story of young boy named Chris who feels discouraged from a bad fall off the monkey bars. To help Chris overcome his embarrassment and fears, Chris' father tells him an inspiring story of a young bird named Screech who was fearful of flight. With encouragement from his friend Tracker the Monkey, and the magic words of "I CAN DO IT," Screech finds the courage and belief in himself to overcome his fears. Inspired by Screech's accomplishment, young Chris summons up all his courage and newfound self-belief to climb the monkey bars.
Toad Catchers’ Creek underlines the importance of helping kids to overcome their fears and obstacles as they face real world challenges during their formative years.
