What a awesome depiction of the natural world! The detailed information in the text about so many species of frogs is enhanced by amazing photographs worthy of many hours of browsing. Add to that a variety of frog-inspired quotations from some of the world's most well-known writers (e.g.,Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau), and you have a lovely combination of the beauty of nature with the power of language.Was this review helpful?
