Editorial Reviews

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.

Format: Hardcover
Hop Frog tells us all about the life cycle of the leopard frog. We follow him from egg, to tadpole to tadpole with legs them into a young frog. Asa frog he has a lot to learn. He has to hunt for food and look out for predators.

This picture book teaches kids about science in a fun and entertaining way. It's done in picture book style while giving kids all the information they need on the life cycle of a frog.

This book would be helpful to elementary students when learning about the life cycle of frogs.
