When a girl and her mother collect frog spawn from a pond to bring home and observe, the daughter isn't sure what to expect. The spawn itself is gray jelly stuff, loads of slimy bubbles all stuck together. But soon, promises her mom, the black dot at each bubble's center will be a tadpole. Day after day, the girl watches as slippery and slithery tadpoles appear, sprouting bumps that turn to stumps that become legs with webby feet. Before long, it's time to return the baby frogs to their pond. Engaging narrative and colorful illustrations accurately evoke each stage of growth, in a story that will inspire children to roll up their sleeves and experience firsthand the wonders of the natural world.
