From the Publisher:

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?

A factual look at the life of the desert-dwelling spadefoot toad. Pencil, pen-and-ink, and watercolor illustrations accompany the text.


Kirkus Reviews
"This is top-notch nonfiction for the very young, introducing readers to desert wildlife in general and in particular to the remarkable spadefoot toad..." 04/01/2001

Riverbank Review
"Rich in sensory details, full of observational delights, yet never over the heads of younger readers and listeners, DIG, WAIT, LISTEN is a rare breed of book: it imparts solid information and engages from start to finish. Sayre's added notes divulge more about this fascinating creature and its desert neighbors." - Christine Alfano Spring 2002
