Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
There are more than 4,000 species of frogs and about one-third of them live in trees. This appealing book provides information on tree frogs and does so by comparing them to other frogs. Indeed, there are many similarities among all frogs. They are all amphibians and they are all meat eaters. In other ways, however, tree frogs are very different from other frogs. Instead of living on or near water, tree frogs make their homes in bushes, tall grasses, and of course, in trees. This book provides an introduction to the basic life cycle of the tree frog. There are chapters that discuss how they find food, trick their enemies, find a mate, lay eggs, hatch as tadpoles, and grow into frogs. The vibrant and glossy photographs will captivate young readers and will help them to easily understand the characteristics of this very interesting and distinctive creature. This book is part of the "Amphibiana" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
