From Tadpole to Frog: Following the Life Cycleby Suzanne Slade, Jeff Yesh
How many eggs does a wood frog lay? What does a tadpole eat? Hop through the pages of this book and discover the life cycle of a wood frog.
Each book introduces a well-known species before focusing on its life cycle. All of them have four stages except Puppy, which has three. Scientific terminology such as "metamorphosis," "dispersal," and "gestation period" is used. A concluding diagram of the entire cycle gives the approximate length of each stage and provides a tidy review of the content. Most spreads include an inset with additional material; "Fun Facts" add a little more information. Unfortunately, the digitally produced illustrations, a major part of the book, lack detail and offer no additional information.
