"Part picture book for pleasure reading . . . and part practical how-to, this dramatic account is the next best thing to setting up a hatchery of your own." - FAMILYFUN
When a mother brings her daughter to a pond to collect some frog spawn, the little girl isn’t sure what to expect. Day after day she checks on the jellylike bubbles until they turn into tadpoles, which sprout stumps that turn into legs with webby feet. The engaging narrative and colorful illustrations accurately evoke each stage of a frog’s growth - in a story that will inspire children to experience firsthand the wonders of the natural world.
