More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3

Short paragraphs of simply written text describe the featured animals' key body parts and how they function, e.g., the kangaroo's tail and pouch; the orangutan's hands and feet; the poison frog's brightly colored, slime-coated skin, etc. Behavior, diet, and care and development of the young are briefly addressed. Facing the text on each spread is a full-page, sharp, color close-up of one or more of the featured animals in their natural habitat; a smaller blow-up, in a circular format, appears above the text and, in most sections, highlights the body parts discussed. Other shots include the animal babies. Dart Frogs depicts a variety of species, most of which are identified in captions by common names. The few scientific terms employed are defined in simple terms in a glossary at the beginning of each title; a world map, shaded to indicate geographical range; and a photo diagram of the animal's life cycle are also included. Other introductions feature these animals, but most are aimed at a higher reading level, such as Sandra Markle's excellent Outside and Inside Kangaroos (S & S, 1999). Bredeson's simply written and colorful titles will provide younger readers with satisfying first introductions to these fascinating creatures.-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library

    This is part of the¿Zoom in on Animals¿ series and I¿ll certainl

    This is part of the”Zoom in on Animals” series and I’ll certainly be looking out for more of these in future! This book has fantastic photographs of a wide range of Poison Dart Frogs. It is well organised with a clear contents page and index to aid navigation. It contains quite a lot of information and is likely to stimulate the interest of readers so there are also a variety of other books and websites suggested for anyone wishing to learn more about them. The text is brief, concise, clearly presented and easy to understand - I learnt quite a few interesting snippets from reading it. This book is certainly worthy of inclusion in any children’s collection or library and I highly recommend it. Now I need to go look for some of the others in this series to learn even more!

    Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
