A brand new series! These bright, bold picture books illustrate the life cycles of fascinating animals. The first two titles start with creatures in our own backyards, FROG and BUTTERFLY. These books take readers through each stage that occurs from birth to adulthood--from egg to tadpole to frog, or from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. Lush, accurate illustrations of habitat feature plant life and other animals on die-cut pages that get longer as the animal grows! Captions, labels, and diagrams provide lots of information on every page without sacrificing the book's beauty and appeal. The story of each animal's life will captivate younger and older children both, and the glossary and index will provide extra information for kids or educators who want to know more.
