Bishop, Nic. Nic Bishop Frogs (2008)
Nic Bishop Frogsis an amazing look at frogs for children in early grades. Each page contains an astonishing close up photograph of a different type of frog from the tiny, see- through glass frog the size of a pea, to the African bullfrog which can weigh up to three pounds. The book includes fascinating facts about unusual frogs as well as information about frogs in general, their lifecycle, common characteristics, and even answers the age old question about the difference between a frog and a toad. The layout and design of the book are stunning. Not only are the photographs extremely colorful, but so are the pages and the text. The text comes in different colors, sizes and fonts and is spreadthroughout the pages so nothing in the book looks too “wordy”. On each page, there is text that is highlighted and bold that grabs the reader’s attention and functions somewhat as a summary or chapter heading for that page. I loved the author’s autobiographical note and photographs at the end of the book. His enthusiastic description of his work may also serve to inspire young readers to become future biologists! There is an index and a glossary.
