Read and Wonder
Huge frogs, tiny frogs, hairy frogs, and flying frogs hop through the pages of this colorful nonfiction book. Discover the Goliath frog, biggest in the world, and the Darwin’s frog, which has a pointy nose and holds its tadpoles in its mouth. Learn why some frogs are brightly colored and which one can bury itself in the desert until rain comes. There are so many kinds of frogs in the world — more than five thousand! — and all of them are fabulous.
“Rich in greens and browns and full of splattery textures, especially the frogs. Most frog books focus on life cycle, this one nicely highlights diversity instead.” — Kirkus Reviews
