From writer Will Millard and illustrator Rachel Qiuqi, In the Pond is an interactive full-color picture book providing a first introduction to frogs and other pond life featuring double-layer lift-the-flaps for fun and surprises.

Explore life in a pond with five interactive nature stories. Each simple “story” is set across a double-page spread and is revealed through double-layer lift-the-flaps. Watch a tadpole become a frog, a dragonfly take its first flight, a fish narrowly escape a kingfisher, and more.

Simple rhyming text paired with educational bold-faced sight words help young readers grow their vocabulary, making the story accessible and educational while encouraging kids to stop and observe the natural world.
