In a follow-up to her very successful book Mary Ann, Betsy James has chosen tadpoles as her next subject. The ones growing from the eggs Molly found in the pond are more fun than her new baby brother. Under Molly's tender care, the tadpoles grow and thrive. But when they become frogs, a brokenhearted Molly must return them to their pond. How will she ever be able to part with them? In a surprise ending, it is her baby brother who helps his big sister in a most unexpected way!

More than a book about frogs and their babies, Tadpoles shows how all living things grow -- including people. Betsy James's exuberant illustrations capture the ups and downs of the relationship between a child and her new sibling, while cutaway pictures on the pages accurately detail the tadpoles' growth. Combining science with storytelling, this book gives good advice on how to care for tadpoles -- and little brothers!
