9780991154425: Hop Frog

One spring day a frog's egg hatches in a quiet lake. The tiny tadpole that emerges is weak at first, but little by little he grows stronger. Soon he sprouts legs and swims to the lake's surface to breathe. A few weeks later he hops out of the lake onto dry land, a young frog at last. But land turns out to be a very different place from his watery home. Can the little frog survive?

About the Author:

Rick Chrustowski is the author/illustrator of several books for young readers. He lives and works in an old farmhouse on a hill in Wisconsin.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-This colorful picture book follows a leopard frog through his first year of life, as he grows from a tadpole to an adult. The informative text reads like a story, as Chrustowski describes the animal's transformations, highlights his adaptations, and introduces some of his many predators. Scientific details, such as the appearance of front legs at 11 weeks, blend easily with the narrative. The watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations are vibrant and crystal clear; they show close-up glimpses of the frog as well as larger scenes of the pond and its wildlife. This book can satisfy children's curiosity about this creature's life cycle while it entertains them.
