Overview

Is that a part of a leaf, or is it a little frog? Sometimes it's hard to tell. When green tree frogs tuck in their legs and go to sleep, they blend right in with the leaves they use as beds. Hungry animals usually pass right by the camouflaged creatures, missing out on a tasty meal. Look inside to learn more about the ways these masters of disguise live and stay safe-but keep a close eye on them. If you don't, they might disappear right before your eyes.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Part of the "Disappearing Acts" series, this book describes how green tree frogs live, reproduce, and adapt to their environment. Large photographs show how the frogs sleep during the day, hunt at night, and why they often show up at people's houses at night. Frog sounds are described, and a photo reveals how their vocal sacs fill up with air when they are calling for a mate. There are facts about eggs, tadpoles, and how tadpoles grow to become frogs. One page shows other kinds of animals that are camouflaged to blend in with leaves, stems, and bark. Fact boxes in the shape of leaves contain more interesting information. Other features include a table of contents, picture glossary, index, references, and a map indicating where tree frogs are found in the United States. references to other books and online resources. The reading level is listed as grade two and the interest level from kindergarten to grade three. This text provides a handy reference for a life science curriculum and should also satisfy those readers who are just curious about frogs. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
