About the Author

Vivian French has a lot of experience growing frogs. Every spring when her daughters were little, they visited the pond next door to collect some frog spawn and watch the tadpoles hatch. She says, "My cat was always very interested."

Alison Bartlett says that before she started working on the illustrations for GROWING FROGS, she thought frog spawn was "disgusting." Now she thinks it's amazing!

A little girl and her mother decide to grow frogs in their home. The little girl discovers interesting facts about how frogs become frogs. This book is great for teaching children how frogs grow and why. While the little girl and her mother¿s story is being told, there is a break in the book to give readers facts for better understanding. The illustrations are bright and colorful, which makes the book more appealing to children. This is a great read aloud book for children to read to learn more about science.

A girl observes eggs growing into frogs before releasing them back into the pawn where they were originally fertilized. Just the right balance of wonder and information for primary students studying the life cycle of a frog, complimented by bright, cheerful illustrations.
