Tadpole's Promise

We own another title from this author, Misery Moo, but we checked out Tadpole's Promise from the library. She's got an interesting sense of humor. I laugh out loud at her books.

This activity is not too sick and twisted, but definitely MILDLY sick and twisted

ages 4-8

the book:

Tadpole's Promise

the materials:

Butterfly Lifecycle Sequencing cards

Frog Lifecycle Sequencing cards

Read the book, and the discuss the sequencing cards. Compare the life cycle of the caterpillar to the tadpole, and contrast where they were during each stage of the story.

Discuss why the book opens vertically instead of horizontally. What is above? What is below?

Do animals and insects experience love the way people do? Is the book funny or sad? Why?
