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!

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.
I love this book. Another spring-time favorite.
Super cute!
