Looks at all kinds of frogs, from exotic species to the common greenish-brown specimens found in backyards, discussing their characteristics, life cycles, and habitats.
I dearly love good narrative non-fiction, so was happy to come across Fabulous Frogs. The book is written on two different levels. The larger print works well as a readaloud for preschoolers and early elementary school students. Fortunately for young report writers (and older readers), some pages also have small print that provides additional information about the page’s topic.
The vivid illustrations add interest and further extend the text.
