School Library Journal Reviews 1993 December
PreS-Gr 2-This book once again demonstrates Gibbons's ability to present factual information in an appealing format for very young audiences. Here, she takes readers through the life cycle of frogs, beginning with the eggs or spawn and describing the stages from tadpole to adulthood. Clear, full-color illustrations present their anatomy, daily activities, and the different types. Scientific terms are presented phonetically. A double-page spread explains the difference between a frog and a toad, and the last page provides a few odd and interesting facts about these amphibians, such as ``An African bullfrog can be as large as a football.'' An attractive offering.-Helen Rosenberg, Chicago Public Library, IL Copyright 1993 Cahners Business Information.
