Engagingly written and illustrated by Tammy Carter Bronson, Polliwog is a bilingual English/Spanish picture book for young readers about the remarkable transformation of a polliwog into her new, adult life as a frog. Scientific facts and soft-toned color illustrations fill this most enjoyable read, about an animal growing up and learning to adapt to a new environment, new challenges, and new foods. Polliwog is a welcome and informatively entertaining addition to family, school and community library picture book and/or wildlife collections. --The Midwest Book Review

As Polliwog moves from one transformation to another, her perception changes and she moves from seeing in black and white to seeing in color. This marks her ability to understand the changes that are taking place inside and outside of her. The book is valuable as a science lesson and as a metaphor for change in our lives. ...a great read aloud in the library or in science and Spanish classrooms. --Library Media Connection (LMC)

[Polliwog] is happy with who she is and how she lives. She even grumbles about how annoying frogs are. Little does she know that one day soon, she will develop into a frog herself...The illustrations are vivid, yet delicately shaded and finely detailed, and color plays a unique part in delivering the text's meaning...Educational pages at the end of the book explain the life cycle of the frog and share some facts about frogs. In addition to the scientific information, this charming story offers inspiring lessons in adapting to change and accepting differences. --ForeWord Magazine
