" Good book for kids to learn but I already new the information in this book. " Tony Petry said.
" My daughter would rate this a 5, to read over and over. " Megan said.
" Love the clear photographs used in the DK Eyewitness series. This is no exception and reading this to our boys and seeing the life cycle of a frog in this one brings back all the memories of catching tadpoles as a child. " Lori said.
" Great book to introduce children to the world of frogs. Our girls learned about the life cycle of a frog in school, so they were already "experts" on this topic. But they still really enjoyed reading this book and were able to talk about the different stages a frog goes through as it grows. Good book to read aloud and great for early readers. " Dolly said.
"Wonderful photographs illustrating the life cycle of a frog--from egg, to tadpole, and various stages between tadpole and frog. Inset photos provide closer looks at key vocabulary words, such as the webbed toes and gills. The images in this book worked well with my document camera/projector set up.
I read this one paired with one of the Froggy fiction titles by London and Fowler's Frogs and Toads and Tadpoles Too. Would have given this title five starts if it had included a traditional index instead of a photo "words you know". " Ronda said.
"This is a DK Level. Beginning to read book. While there ARE some simple sight words and words that folllw beginning basic phonics, this is a book that will need to be read with an experienced reader.
This book gives an excellent explanation of the life cycle of a tadpole. The photographs ( illustrations; it is hard to tell which) are,excellent. There is a picture word list/ glossary at the end of the book.
I consider this a "meaty" book for early readers to learn about a more grown up subject in nature, something that they might actually go out and find in a pond or shallow parts of a lake." Linda Branich said.
" It's a good book with good pictures that makes it easy to explain a frog's life cycle to a kid. One part that was completely unnecessary was the "build a frog home" project. Just imagine the disappointment, when a kid builds this little "house" in the garden, but a frog never comes to live in it. " Anna Nesterovich said.
"I wanted this to be a book my child could read to me easily, as we are moving on from phonics readers and the like. The pictures are great, as is the case with most DK books. The only word beyond my five year old was 'tongue' which was one of the picture words (i.e. one of about eight words that are clearly defined by a picture within the book). There were no 'gh' words or other tricky ones to trip a beginning reader up." K. Tkaczyk said.
