Charting a familiar lifecycle

13th February 2004 at 00:00
Watching the reproductive cycle of frogs has given numerous generations of children the chance to understand amphibian existence and something of the mystery of life itself. Keeping Common Frog Tadpoles is a tough laminated eight-page chart that unfolds into a resource to keep near a tank or pond.

On one side is a clear illustrated stage-by-stage account of the transition from freshly-laid spawn to froglet. On the other side is a detailed set of notes on the proper care of these beautiful creatures. The chart is carefully shaped to maximise enjoyment and instruction and to minimise environmental impact. Keeping Common Frog Tadpoles costs pound;2.50, plus pound;1 postage and packaging, from FSC Publications, Preston Montford, Shrewsbury SY4 1HW.
