This fact-filled, colorful look at the amazing world of frogs includes a call to action to protect these fascinating creatures.
In this simple introduction to frogs and ecology, Melissa Stewart shares with young readers the behavior and beauty of frogs and describes specific ways people can help protect them and their natural habitats.
Children learn basic facts about frogs, including where they live, what they eat, and how they benefit plants and other animals. Sidebars throughout the book contain information on how human action has harmed frogs and the many ways people can protect certain frog populations, such as by preserving wetlands and cutting down on pesticide use. Pointers on how youngsters can help frogs in their own neighborhood are also included.
Author Melissa Stewart offers children a glimpse into the interconnectedness of our world and shows how the actions of one species can inadvertently harm another. Illustrator Higgins Bond's colorful, realistically detailed watercolor illustrations highlight the diversity of the species-from the northern leopard frog native to Minnesota ponds to the harlequin frog in the rainforests of Central America.

Conservation awareness is the important message in this beautifully illustrated title. Great for those students that love to read non-fiction books. Recommended for Grade 3-4.
