Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1: From Tadpole to Frog
Read and find out about how a tadpole loses its fishy tail and gills and becomes a frog in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.
Female frogs lay eggs in the water, but what hatches isn't a frog yet—it's a tadpole. Tadpoles are like tiny fish that breathe underwater through gills. As the tadpole gets older, it loses its fishy tale and its gills and grows legs and develops lungs. This picture book shows the incredible metamorphosis that occurs as a tadpole becomes a frog.
This is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. It includes a find out more section with an illustrated guide to identify different frog species and a map showing where bull frogs can be found throughout the United States.
