In a tropical rain forest in Central America, a red-eyed tree frog spends the night looking for food while avoiding potential predators. Award-winning photographer Nic Bishop's larger-than-life, gorgeous images document the hunt, which ends happily with the frog settling down in the leaves to spend his daylight hours sleeping! Joy Cowley's simple, readable text makes the frog's story fun, interesting, and accessible to young readers. This is a nature tale like you've never seen before!

Pretty Little Frog!!!
This book had amazing life like pictures. I think it would be a great read for Pre-K-Second grade. I read this book to my one year old and she was afraid to touch the pictures. Once she realized that the frog wasn't moving she relaxed and enjoyed it. I like how Cowley went through to show what a tree frog might eat or what might eat a tree frog. The last two pages of the book were very informative by talking about the frogs habitat.

When my daughter was 2, she would recite the words to this book as I turned the pages. With text like 'katydid' this was an impressive task. It was always the #1 book picked off the shelf for a read. Now my 2nd child is 3 and 'Red-Eyed Tree Frog' lost it's first page. I'm getting ready to replace it but I wanted to share with everyone what a great book this is. The pictures are so vivid, they just suck the kids in. There are only 1-2 lines of text on a page but the way it is written really gets the kids thinking, asking questions and anticipating the outcome. I have a boy (3)and a girl (6) and it will be a long time before they outgrow this book. I think (for my daughter especially) that this will be one of those books that will remind her of her childhood. I hope you like it too!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book showed the night in the life of a red-eyed tree frog. My 2 1/2 year old daughter LOVES this book. The photographs are awesome and the text is both humorous and informative.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
