Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
The world of frogs is explored in this nonfiction text that is part of the "Amazing Animals" series. Close-up photographs in color provide fascinating details of frogs in their environment. The text begins with a description of how the eggs become tadpoles and eventually frogs. Sidebars throughout the book add related facts and illustrations. In the chapter about the body of a frog, the difference between frogs and toads is explained along with the fact that "all toads are frogs, but not all frogs are toads." The comprehensive text includes how frogs hunt, how they eat, and how they make sounds. One page has a surprising photo of a red-eyed tree frog that opens its eyes suddenly to scare away predators. Some information is given about endangered frogs. The text includes a table of contents, a glossary, and an index. There is also a 10-question quiz and a page that lists related books and websites. The text contains lots of information and is a good resource for research and for interesting reading. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
