Fish is Fish

Where can I find this book? Fish is Fish  Book level? ATOS 3.7

A young fish and young tadpole are friends, but then the frog grows up and is able to leave the pond. The frog sees all these things, that the fish has never seen. The fish imagines these to have fish bodies and adds the information from frog. He uses his schema to come up with a picture of these items. One day fish tries to leave the pond and is gasping for breath on the shore. Frog saves him by pushing him into the water, and fish decides that he lives in the most beautiful place.
