Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
So colorful yet so deadly are the poison dart frogs found in the Central and South American rainforests. When these small amphibians feel threatened, they secrete venom on their skin. The toxins make their predators sick or even die. The defense mechanism of this creature is the featured topic of the book, which also includes brief information about its habitat and life. The photographs display the range of the brilliant colors of the poison dart frogs. The captions also provide interesting information about this frog. Young readers may need some help with the content vocabulary in this informational text and they may be fascinated by the close-up photos of the poison dart frog. The text includes a brief description of another amphibian that also secretes a poisonous venom. Readers will find a simple glossary with photographs and index. For further exploration, there are a few additional resources, and a publisher website with portals to sites about the poison dart frog. This book is one of six in the "Gross-Out Defenses" series which features other animals and their defense mechanisms. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
