On a bright green leaf in a rain forest tree, a tiny frog is resting until night falls, when it’s time to go hunting. The frog’s red eyes are closed, and its colorful orange feet are tucked beneath its body. From above, the green frog is perfectly camouflaged against the leaf, and almost invisible to its predators.
Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its second-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume introduces young readers to the everyday life of a red-eyed tree frog. Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to make scientific observations based on the book’s images and answer questions about the lives and physical characteristics of these tiny frogs. This innovative approach to teaching about wild animals gives young scientists the chance not only to read and learn the facts, but also to develop their own powers of observation and critical thinking.
