A Place for Frogs is a beautiful picture book which explains some of the obstacles frogs of North and Central America have to children. They learn how the actions of humans affect these little creatures.
I'm a sucker for frogs with their cute bulging eyes so I really enjoyed A Place for Frogs. I read this one to my daughter who liked it as well. The text can be easily understood by school aged children and the illustrations by Higgins Bond are bright and lifelike. My girl was the most excited by the map at the back of the book. She liked seeing where the frogs lived and was happy to see that some of them live in our area.
My only gripe was that some of the text is repetitive but overall it's a fun educational read.
Now for a gratuitous frog photo:
I took this one last October when I found him (her?) hanging out on the side of my garage.
Thanks to Peachtree Publishers for the review copy.
