By Sharon MacDonald

First comes the egg,
All gooey and sticky.
A frog from an egg?
Getting out must be tricky.

Next comes the tadpole,
A strange little creature.
It knows how to swim.
Wonder who's its teacher.

Oh, my goodness!
What do I see?
Legs on a tadpole.
How can that be?

From egg to tadpole,
It doesn't take years.
Two more legs grow,
And the tail disappears.

First egg then tadpole,
And finally a frog
That can hop and croak,
As it sits on a log.
