"Mr. Almaraz, thank you for sharing your Toby Globy program for the children's environmental project. It is certainly of primary importance to generate awareness and concern about the environmental issues confronting America today. Our children must be our hope! They must understand that each person's efforts count."
"Through interactive presentations, dramatic play, bilingual songs and activity-laden educational materials, the (Toby Globy) program taps into a child's most critical skill: imagination...and it's the grown-ups' job to listen and learn."
"We all know that the most fertile minds, and in turn, the best teachers are our children. So we are very excited about your Toby Globy materials that are so cleverly written to teach children about recycling and conservation."
"...We need to start with the children and get them used to doing this (eco-education) sort of thing because it's very difficult to unlearn a bad habit, and many of us, as adults, have learned some very bad habits - and that's a throw-away society."
"Mr. Almaraz, The City of Corpus Christi Water and Storm Water Departments teamed up to introduce the Toby Globy Educational Program to area Head Start Centers. The program was very well received by teachers and students. The easy-to-follow teacher's guidebook and children's activities are a hit. The DVD movie of young thespians teaches young children examples of how everyone can help protect the environment. We will definitely use the program again and again."
"Toby is a great character that really captures kids' attention. Judges loved Toby's grassroots approach of teaching young kids, who in turn go home and teach their parents."
"Toby Globy, the big headed eco-friendly, planet saving mascot has gone beyond endearing children with catchy songs and eco-tips, the messages are actually sinking in."
