This book is a story about tadpoles becoming frogs and all the scientific stages they go through. This book would be best for students from kindergarten to second grade. I rated this book 5 out of 5 because it is a great story and uses the information in a great way for younger kids to follow, enjoy, and understand. I really enjoy the illustrations also. This would be a great one to read during an animal unit.

The book was great. It taught the process of how a tadpole eventually turns into a frog. The pictures were great making the book easy to understand. I really liked how it showed other frogs from around the world and some about them towards the back of the book.

In response to the previous review, it does depend on the species - and the region. In the northeast US, species like bullfrogs and green frogs (Rana catesbeiana and R. clamitans respectively) can spend the winter as tadpoles. In other areas, they don't. I haven't read the book, but am considering it for my nephews because I study amphibians & reptiles for a living (including for my PhD). So...if this is the only factual concern you have, you can go back to enjoying the book.

I believe some of the information in the book is wrong. The book says that a tadpole remains a tadpole all summer and through the winter then becomes a frog in the spring. I believe that the tadpole hatches in the spring and is a frog by the end of summer. I have researched the frog's lifecycle and have found that the total lifecycle from egg to frog is 10-14 weeks, depending on the species. It's unfortunate if the information is wrong because my daughter loves the book and the pictures are great.
