It's Springtime and a bright green frog leaps out of the tall, tall grass and lands in a small, small pond. Splash! Tadpoles and minnows scatter. Summer passes, turtles drowse in the sun and dragonflies hover in the air above. Fall arrives as ducks paddle by and the colors change. Finally, snow falls. The little frog burrows deep into the pond and waits for spring to come again.

This book would be great for students just learning about animals. It is also great for teaching students new descriptive words and adjectives. Read full review

I don't remember this well enough to give it real review but I do remember liking it a lot, especially as I was fairly fresh out of teacher-training when I read it and I thought it would work really well in a classroom, if used, for example, to inspire creativity. Read full review
