"This science book about the life cycle of frogs begins with a brief and basic paragraph about frogs. The author tells the reader that there are more than 5,000 kinds of frogs, and the reader will learn about the life cycle of a wood frog. Life begins as an egg, then a tadpole, a froglet and finally an adult frog. Female wood frogs lay from 300 to more than 1,000 eggs at one time. She lays them in the water beside clusters of other eggs. Within the egg, a tadpole begins to grow, surrounded by a clear jelly. This jelly warms the eggs. Two weeks to a month later, a brown tadpole hatches. It breathes through gills. Within three months, a tadpole goes through a metamorphosis, or change. It develops from a legless tadpole to a tadpole with back legs, and then to four legs. The tail shrinks when legs develop. When wood frogs are about 2 years old, they become adults, find a pond and mate. The males croak loudly to attract the females. Frogs usually mate in the spring months. Eggs are laid in the pond and the life cycle begins again. Back material includes fun facts about frogs such as frogs don’t need to drink water because it is absorbed through their skin. A glossary, list of books to read and Internet sites are included." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

"...cover[s] the progress from egg clusters to clinging hatchlings, then move[s] on to wiggling tadpoles. Soon gills disappear, eyes begin to bulge, and finally legs lengthen, strengthen, and bounce around. . . .[the] book’s double-page paintings by Jeff Yesh offer additional facts in small rectangles.
