"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." -- Family Fun 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 the black dots in their centers turn into slippery tadpoles, sprouting bumps that turn to stumps that become 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 roll up their sleeves and experience firsthand the wonders of the natural world. Back matter includes an index.
