Comments for Red-Eyed Tree Frog

Red-Eyed Tree Frog: 10/11/11

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)My son and I are fans of nature photography. He brought home Red-Eyed Tree Frog by Joy Cowley and Nic Bishop from school mostly because of the gorgeous photograph on the cover.

Cowley's text is pretty basic, but was easy enough for Sean and Harriet to share together as she is just beginning to read. The text covers things like what frogs eat and what creatures eat frogs. It's repetitive with few words and a small vocabulary, good for young children curious about exotic animals.

But what really makes this book shine is the photographic work by Nic Bishop. His shots are full of detail, even the action shots. They are worth a second or third look after finishing the book.

Four stars.
