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.

Review:

“Well-designed ink drawings washed with soft-toned watercolors stretch across the double-page spreads, showing the action above and below water level.” (Booklist)

“Sentences are simple, with questions and exclamations to help break up the informative text. Keller’s clean, clear watercolor illustrations, similar in style to those of Nancy Tafuri, show a variety of pond animals and plant life through the seasons.” (School Library Journal)

“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. (Science Books and Films)
