Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wendy Pfeffer describes the amazing metamorphosis from tiny, jellylike egg, to little fishy tadpole, to great big bullfrog. Holly Keller has created the archetypal frog pond and we see it through the seasons as the tadpoles grow legs and lungs and eventually hop onto land: bullfrogs at last. "Well-designed ink drawings washed with soft-toned watercolors stretch across the double-page spreads, showing the action above and below water level. . . .an attractive, general introduction."—BL.

Synopsis:

Winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series

A tadpole is a baby frog!

Female frogs lay masses of jelly-coated eggs in the water, but what hatches from each egg isn't a frog yet—it's a tadpole. Tadpoles are likely tiny fish that breathe underwater through gills. As the tadpole gets older, it loses its fishy tail and its gills and grows legs and develops lungs. The tadpole has become a frog. From Tadpole to Frog is a lovely first look at this amazing metamorphosis.
