JIM ARNOSKY has written ninety-eight books about wildlife and nature for children, and has been awarded the American Association for the Advancement of Science Lifetime Achievement Award for excellence in science illustration. When he and his wife are not travelling and exploring nature, they live in Vermont.From Booklist:
Gr. 2-4, younger for reading aloud. Arnosky adds to his excellent All About series, which includes All about Owls (1999) and All about Turtles (2000). Here, he brings to the subject of frogs his considerable skills as a naturalist, artist, and writer. Beginning with a discussion of amphibians, the book goes on to talk specifically about frogs: their distinctive characteristics, habits, habitats, range, life cycle, diet, and the threats to their existence. The attractive acrylic paintings, well designed to illustrate particular points, zoom in for details and show various kinds of frogs engaged in typical behaviors and seen from many points of view. Arnosky takes care to point out when an illustration shows the actual size of a particular species. Always informative, yet casual in tone, the text will engage young readers without talking down to them. Carolyn Phelan
