Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Children who are just beginning to read can learn about their world with the "Lets-Read-And-Find-Out Science" series. The series is well conceived and the developmental reading and interest level are nicely matched. Many outstanding nonfiction writers and illustrators have contributed to this series. For ages three to six, there are Stage 1 books which include Pfeffer's From Tadpole to Frog. It depicts the amazing metamorphosis of a tiny tadpole to great big bullfrog. Also available in audio format.
Booklist
“Well-designed ink drawings washed with soft-toned watercolors stretch across the double-page spreads, showing the action above and below water level.”
Science Books and Films
“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.
