A fantastic book by Sheriden Cain. The Teeny Weeny Tadpole is the story of a tadpole who wants to jump like his mummy the frog! The tatpole watches his mummy jump high into the air with a flippity-flop onto a lily pad, but poor young tadpole can only manages a splich and a slash. He asks her why he can't do it and she says," you will one day". The tadpole then decides to go for a swim downstream and his mummy tells him to watch out for the big bad fish.

On his way he comes across a wooly lamb an

A very sweet story relating how long growing up can seem to little ones.

This little tadpole wants to jump like his Mother but needs to wait to grow a little bit more. Before he knows it, he is able to use those frog legs and jump so far.

A great tale to read to any little one impatient to grow up!

This book went even better than I thought it would. I recommend it for a small group because you can see in the illustrations how the tadpole is evolving into a frog. It's a fun book!

The teeny weeny tadpole wants to be able to jump like his momma frog and sheep and rabbit. They all tell him soon he will, and eventually he does. Good thing too, because the big mean fish would have eaten him otherwise.

Comically illustrated, and with repeating text easy for kids to catch on to, this is a good pick for kids with a lesson about being patient about growing up.

This is one of my favorite books to read to Ella. I like the pictures and she loves looking for (and kissing) the ladybug that appears on most of the pages.
