Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know that yellow-bellied toads roll over to show poisonous warning colors on their bellies? And that when danger threatens, a common toad can inflate itself so that it stands on tiptoe? The photographs to go along with these amazing facts certainly draw the reader's attention. Tree frogs and mud puppies belong to the amphibia class in the Chordata phylum. The variety of amphibians is just amazing. This book discusses the large diversity of amphibians, a typical amphibian's body, ancient amphibians, and an amphibian's skin and senses. It discusses hiding and warning, movement, prey, courtship, strange breeders, and the life-cycle. Information is also included about salamanders and caecilians, newts, tree frogs and other types of frogs, toads, giants, survival tactics, and amphibians in danger. This book is filled with colorful, dramatic photos of amphibians. The pages are well organized and the text is interesting and yet written in clear language without talking down to the reader. The back matter contains an index, a bibliography, some web information, a glossary, and a chart for animal classification. This book is part of Compass Point Books' "Animal Kingdom Classification" series, which includes the titles Centipedes, Millipedes, Scorpions and Spiders; Ant Lions, Wasps and Other Insects; and Tree Frogs, Mud Puppies and Other Amphibians. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 7 to 10.
