Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Find out about the life cycle of a frog from egg to adult and see the amazing color snapshots of this amphibian during various stages of its life. Look at the photograph of the tadpoles hatching from their eggs. Close-up photos show the physical changes as the tadpole with its feathery gills becomes a froglet and begins to look more like an adult. The photographs have captions that provide some additional information about the life process; however, readers may have to navigate the text of the main body, captions, and diagrams. Occasionally, the text is difficult to see because of the color or background on the page. Bold print words from the main text are listed in the glossary; most of the words in the glossary are listed in the index. Those adults working with children may find the tips and ideas in the back of the book to be helpful. This book is one of six from the "Life Cycles" series. The books in the series have a similar format and straightforward presentation. It would have been nice to include a reptile in the series to round out the groups that were represented. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3–Defining “life cycle” as birth to reproduction (death is often not even mentioned), these volumes combine big, bright color photos with short blocks of easy-to-read text and captions. The information is sometimes simplified to the point of confusion–readers are informed that adult butterflies live for only two to five weeks, for instance, but on the next page they will learn that the monarch's annual migration can take months. Also, aside from similar study guides at the end of each volume, there are no resources for further enquiry.
