A stunningly illustrated introduction to our planet’s many frog species!

Frogs, frogs, and more frogs! This exciting survey of the world’s frog species will introduce children to varieties as diverse as the golden poison frog (the planet’s most toxic animal), the Amau frog (so tiny it’s no bigger than a
housefly), and the Chinese gliding frog (which can “fly” up to 17 feet)!

Their different hunting techniques, preferred foods, body types, and methods of defense are covered, as are the universal basics of the frog life cycle. Colorful, scientifically accurate illustration is paired with a distinguished
nonfiction writer’s plain, energetic text in this excellent introduction to the diversity and fundamentals of frogs. Back matter includes information on frog disappearances and conservation efforts.

A Cybils Awards Finalist in the Elementary Nonfiction category!

* “Kelly, winner of numerous awards for her nature books for children, now introduces the amazing activities that encompass the life of a frog…. Borin has perfectly captured the lives of frogs and their various habitats by creating attractive watercolor illustrations in a design that is reminiscent of an artist’s sketchbook. The detailed drawings will encourage students to look closely as they discover different patterns and textures. Each picture shows a particular species, which Kelly carefully names even as she describes common behaviors. Also included is current information on frog disappearances and conservation efforts to save endangered ones. The simple text and detailed illustrations make this is a fun and informative tour through the exciting amphibian world. Perfect for young researchers and a welcome addition to all libraries.”School Library Journal, Starred Review

“Full of frog facts, this picture book provides an inviting introduction to the life cycle, behaviors, and characteristics of frogs. Intricate, colorful illustrations of many species are featured here, accompanied by straightforward, informative text that explains how frogs breathe, shed, hunt, eat, jump, hide, reproduce, develop, and survive in their habitats…. A solid addition to the nature shelf.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Borin’s inviting artwork, rendered in watercolor, marker pen, and pencil, features bright colors and depicts the textures and shadings on various species, resulting in an impressionistic feel…. an attractive addition to the amphibian shelf.”—Booklist
