Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
At first glance, the book is appealing. It invites the reader to explore types of frogs, toads, and turtles. Divided into three sections, each specific type of frog, toad, or turtle is given one page. On that page, one can find a picture and description of a particular sub-specie, its habitat, and dietary needs. However, other than the actual picture of the amphibian, the small illustrations are almost cartoon-like. The inserts of "interesting facts" are fascinating, but distracting. In the bottom border of each page is an irrelevant quote that is even more distracting. The most disturbing issue is the poor description of where each specie can be found. An example of this is, "The treefrog is found everywhere east of the Mississippi River south to northern Florida, and west into Texas." If adult readers have difficulty deciphering the information, children will find it impossible. The table of contents is detailed enough, but the further information and index are not. Other books on this topic are much more highly recommended. The book is part of the "Young Naturalist Field Guide" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens, Ages 5 to 10, $21.27 and $6.95. Reviewer: Jenny B. (J. B.) Petty
From The Critics
This book can help eager young naturalists identify twenty-six different species of frogs, turtles, and tortoises that they may encounter in their backyard or on nature hikes. The guide provides information about what each species looks like, where it lives, and what it eats. The author also includes easy-to-follow instructions for fun related activities. Very nice. Part of the "Young Naturalist Field Guides" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $15.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: S. Kleven SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
