Book Review


This book is full of facts about frogs. The first two pages explore general frog facts about diet and physical attributes, including the egg and tadpole stages. The following pages explore different types of frogs from around the world: the huge Goliath frog from western Africa, the colorful South American Poison Arrow frog, and even the frog you are likely to see sitting on a lily pad in your backyard. Fun facts about each of the frogs are explored, including how the pointy-nosed Darwin frog scoops up his eggs and carries the newly hatched tadpoles in a pouch in his mouth.
