4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By H. Lucas on 17 April 2007
Format: Hardcover
The device of a frog answering the questions of a young, curious cat works extremely well in this lively information story. The direct conversation between the friends adds pace and energy and a great deal of information is imparted in an interesting way: children learn about the life cycle of a frog, about other living things that hatch from eggs, and about those that grow from seeds. A picture summary and a short index help children learn about retrieval devices. This is a book that will not only help children to learn, but will make the learning enjoyable. In short, it is original, entertaining and appealing to young learners.

Format: Hardcover
This book gives 4 or 5 year old kids a great introduction to some scientific ideas in a very simple way. It is beautifully illustrated and is a 'must have' if your child wants to know why things are the way they are.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a British mum to children growing up in France, so always on hunt for good English material. This ticked my boxes!! It's fun, with charming characters, and very educational. My 3 year old likes it, so it passes the test!! I'll be looking at other titles in series. Really like 'extra' part at end that can develop what child saw in the story.

Format: Paperback
This series of books has been a hit with my three year old, are pitched at almost exactly the right level for that sort of age, have lovely pictures and are pleasant to read. I think some of the books in the series work better than others as some science concepts work better in print while others are trickier. This one and the one on electricity are probably the best two in my opinion.

This one starts with Oscar seeing some tadpoles and discussing them with the frog who then explains the lifecycle of a frog. They then talk about other animals that hatch out of eggs, where different animals lay their eggs, and that plants grow from seeds and about different types of seeds. Finally they talk about how when Oscar was born he was smaller and that animals need different types of food to grow, that eventually he will stop growing and that different plants and animals grow at different rates. There's no mention of death or dying incidentally, if that is a subject that hasn't been broached yet.
