Description


The desert Southwest
is full of sounds.

Skitter, skitter, scratch.
A scorpion is crawling.
Pop, pop, pop.
kangaroo rat is hopping.
Tsk, tsk, tsk.
A rattlesnake is
shaking its tail.

But the spadefoot toad
is quiet in her
underground burrow,
listening for one sound
in particular...
What is that sound?
And what will the
spadefoot toad do
when she hears it?

About the Author


Seeing a frog's face can make April Pulley Sayre's day, so it is no wonder she chose to write about hoppiness. The author almost dedicated her life to studying lemurs in Madagascar. Instead, she became an award-winning author of numerous books about science and natural history for children, including Dig, Wait, Listen, illustrated by Barbara Bash, and Stars Beneath Your Bed, illustrated by Ann Jonas. The author travels the world doing research for her books, but she lives in South Bend, Indiana.
