Every child should experience the excitement of finding tadpoles and watching them grow, and this lift-the-flap board book perfectly captures the fun of this experience.
With friendly, read-aloud text, beautiful photos and illustrations, and surprise flaps, the easy-to-follow pages explain the complete life cycle of a frog to young children.
This entertaining nature book makes a wonderful gift for preschoolers. They'll discover frogs in a garden - hiding under leaves, sitting on lily pads, and jumping into ponds with a plop! And they'll follow the lift-the-flap story, learning how a frog grows: one mummy frog lays her eggs in frogspawn, then close-up photos show the tadpoles hatching, growing legs, their tails shriveling up, and a little froglet becoming a frog.
There's also information on how frogs are helpful to gardens, how to make safe places for them, plants they like, differences between frogs and toads, and the variety of frogs around the world - from Wallace's flying frog of Southeast Asia and South America's dyeing poison dart frog to the European agile frog, Australia's ornate burrowing frog, and the banded bullfrog, found in Asian countries, including China and India.
With a fun approach to life cycle science for young learners, How Does a Frog Grow? is an informative picture book to share and enjoy.
