Description


Read and find out about how a tadpole loses its fishy tail and gills and becomes a frog in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

Female frogs lay eggs in the water, but what hatches isn't a frog yet—it's a tadpole. Tadpoles are like tiny fish that breathe underwater through gills. As the tadpole gets older, it loses its fishy tale and its gills and grows legs and develops lungs. This picture book shows the incredible metamorphosis that occurs as a tadpole becomes a frog. 

This is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. It includes a find out more section with an illustrated guide to identify different frog species and a map showing where bull frogs can be found throughout the United States.

Praise For…


“Well-designed ink drawings washed with soft-toned watercolors stretch across the double-page spreads, showing the action above and below water level.” — Booklist

“Sentences are simple, with questions and exclamations to help break up the informative text. Keller’s clean, clear watercolor illustrations, similar in style to those of Nancy Tafuri, show a variety of pond animals and plant life through the seasons.” — School Library Journal

“Kindergarten and preschool-age children, as well as their parents and teachers, will be fascinated by this book on the life cycle of the frog. The illustrations are simple, interesting, and just right for young children. — Science Books and Films
