A frog explains to Oscar how he grew from a tadpole to a frog! The frog also tells Oscar about other creatures likes snails, dragonflies, fish and birds. They also talk about seeds and how those are like little eggs. The print is a little too small for storytime, but excellent for one on one reading.

Another adorable book about how living things begin their life, how plants and animals grow, and reasons for eating. I love this book, very good way to teach children about living organisms, plants, and animals. Good book to keep in the classroom.
Another book in the "Oscar" series that helps children learn about science. I highly recommend this book if you have a child who is very interested in science and nature. We will probably check out the whole series.

This was a cute way to talk about the life cycle. It's all fact so it would be great for a science lesson for first graders!

This is a fabulous read-to-me book for toddlers/preschoolers. It combines a light storyline with beginning science/nature concepts.
Great children's picture book about life cycles and growing. Oscar, the cat talks to the frog about tadpoles, birds, caterpillars, birds, and even plants.
