Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The colors, sizes, and habitats of frogs would make anyone marvel at the diversity among these amphibians. There are more than 5,000 species. Frogs can be as small as a half inch or as big as your computer keyboard. Many frogs make ribbit sounds, but each kind of frog has its own distinctive sound and may use it to attract a mate. One of the interior spreads describes the major body parts of a frog with an image and lines connecting the text to the body part. While frogs and toads look alike, most toads live on land. Toads are frogs. The frog habitat can vary from desert sands to areas around lakes and ponds. They eat other small animals and bugs which can be quite beneficial to farmers and people in general. Frogs start life as an egg and then become tadpoles and through metamorphosis became the four legged animal that we are familiar with. The "Time for Kids" nonfiction "Science Scoops" series is filled with eye-catching photographs and just enough information to make early readers feel that they do indeed know something about the subject. This level 2 offering is targeted to developing readers and is distinguished by long sentences, a complex vocabulary, variety in illustrations, and a glossary.
