National Geographic's book on frogs contains science concepts as well as geographic concepts. The photographs are of real frogs, they're colorful and will maintain a child's interest. The children would also enjoy the "comic book" looking illustrations that are in there with the facts. The book is very informative.

In the classroom: This books contains facts and photographs of the frogs and their habitats, this book can be used in a lesson on life cycles as well as geography.

I chose this book to pair with another fictional story about frogs. This book really does a great job of identifying different types of frogs for children and also using bright colors and bright text to keep the children engaged. It paired really well with the fictional story I chose and allowed the children to become more aware about different types of frogs before reading a story about a frog family.

I actually learned a few things while reading this. Definitely good for children.
This book has great photographs and information perfect for Kindergarten read aloud.
I used this book to prompt discussions on life cycles. This is one of many National Geographic Kids books that we have read, since the children love the real pictures. The genuine quality of the pictures help children concretely understand the difference between fiction and non-fiction; and based upon how often they return to these books on the shelf, it seems like they can not get enough of the real world! Thank you National Geographic!

What a great twist on the life of a frog! This book gives kids such detailed descriptions and pictures of the many different types of frogs that live in different habitats around the world. the details in this story were incredible and just difficult enough to challenge the children as they read! I would use this book in teaching the children all about nature and the small animals that live there.

The book is a great book for those starting to read chapter books. It is great because it is informational about frogs, but also has a glossary in the back.
This is a National Geographic Kids book rated level 1. This is a non-fiction book with great real like pictures. The main text of this book is a level 1. But most pages have a little box of supporting information that definately would be too hard for a young reader to read. Would be a great book for the reader to read the main text and then the adult read the bonus information to them.

All about frogs! An easy reader book that gives you information about frogs. It also includes riddles and definitions for certain words. All the images are real pictures. Informs on all different kinds of frogs, their size, color and life cycle. It concludes with the instructions for the happy frog dance. Nice easy book for children to read.
Mrs Bond
Filled with facts and photos, this text aims to grab the reader’s attention. The larger type size and colorful text bubbles usher the reader from page to page of fascinating information on frogs. Includes table of contents, brief visual glossary.

Lots of easy to understand information. Interesting facts. Colorful pictures. Entertaining with additional jokes every few pages. Easy reader.
I liked it because I learned about frogs and it had pictures of real frogs in it.
