What animals are always underfoot, but rarely seen? Toads, of course! In thin Pull Ahead book, beginning readers will get a close-up look at an animal that's usually well-hidden. They'll learn how hiding helps toads stay alive by keeping them wet when it's too dry, cool when it's too hot, and warm when it's too cold. Readers will also discover how toads use hiding and other tricks to avoid both predators and prey. Finally, they'll witness the amazing metamorphosis of a tiny, helpless egg into a swimming, growing tadpole...then a hopping, hiding toad.
