Explore a toad’s life cycle
Toads are small and often unseen by human eyes, but their world is rich and varied. The toads in these eloquent poems describe their many wonders, from sticky fly-catching tongues, to the way they shed skin, and camouflage. Joanne Ryder traces the life cycle of amphibians as they change from springtime tadpoles into full-grown toads that hibernate in winter. Maggie Kneen’s illustrations showcase toads in their natural habitat with precise, dramatic detail. You’ll never think of toads the same way again!
Toad by the Road is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
