Would You Rather Be A Tadpole?

The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library:
Would You Rather Be A Tadpole

From the top to the bottom I think that you’ll see that this pond here is lively as lively can be!

Join the Cat in the Hat as he introduces beginning readers to ponds.

This title and others form part of a series of books that takes an off-beat look at nature and natural sciences through a fun combination of Seussian rhymes and zany illustrations. Aimed at early readers – from four to seven year olds – the books are designed to bridge the gap between concept books written for preschoolers and more formal non fiction titles that require fluent reading skills. By presenting the facts in a lively and rhythmic manner, they provide the critical foundation upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be built.

Year 1: Amphibians
Throughout our Amphibians topic you will learn about the key features of amphibians, find out what frogs eat and the stages of a frog life cycle. Explore a pond habitat and observe why amphibians live there.

Year 2: Habitats: Ocean
Make and paint salt dough star fish and discover the different depths of the ocean and where starfish might live. Map the five oceans and learn about the habitats and locations of each.

Year 2: Microhabitats
Build a bug house while discovering all about butterfly life cycles and the natural animal food chains affecting the United Kingdom. Go pond dipping, beach hunting and explore minibeasts in their microhabitats.
