The Hidden Life of a Toad

Written by Doug Wechsler

This is a great introduction to the life-cycle of a toad. I learned many new details about toads. Did you know that after 55 days, the toad, though fully formed, is no bigger than a pea!? The bulk of the book is written for young readers but there is additional information for those wanting a bit more. The “Toad Facts” section addresses many common questions like: will toads give you warts? and how do toads drink? Fascinating. Perfect for students who love animals and nonfiction books.
