Audience: 3rd Grade - 5th Grade
Frog-lovers, nature-lovers, and even those who just like cool facts will love this book about frogs, full of eye-catching photographs and unexpected frog facts. Did you know that frogs can breathe through their skin, and that when a frog sheds its skin, it sometimes eats it? Or that there are gliding frogs that can use their webbed feet to glide down as much as fifty feet from the top of a tree? Did you know that there are some frogs that freeze partially solid in the winter? Did you ever wonder what the difference is between a frog and a toad? Along with amazing information, there are close-up photographs of many varieties of frogs, from the transparent glass frog (you can see its organs through its skin) to colorful dart poison frogs (which have deadly poison in their skin). Every page in this book is filled with vivid pictures and cool frog facts that you'll want to share with everyone around you.
