Counter Follow the life of one small frog as he journeys from tadpole to adulthood.

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.

Land turns out to be a very different place from his watery home. The newcomer must learn how to hunt for food. He has to dodge unfamiliar predators. But the little frog is lucky: he survives these dangers.

In simple, poetic text and vibrant illustrations, this nonfiction picture book explores the life cycle of the leopard frog.
