Review:

"Readers get a virtual bug's-eye view of the natural world in these beautifully photographed, succinctly written introductions. Both titles are well organized, with terms defined as they appear. However, it is the photography that is the highlight here. Different-sized, sharply focused pictures complement the text on almost every page; many are remarkably detailed, extreme close-ups of flower or insect anatomy... With their excellent photography, crisp texts, and intriguing activities, both titles will be useful additions to most natural-history sections."
--School Library Journal (March 2004) (School Library Journal 20040301)

"Each book in the series features solid information, excellent photography, and genuine inquiry investigations. The books are ideal for teachers and students in the middle level. These well-written books are sure to generate interest in real and intriguing scientific explorations."
-- ScienceScope (Febraury 2003) (Science Scope 20030201)

"Good photos and activities and experiments suited to students in the early elementary school grades are the best features of this book."

From Kirkus Reviews:

The draw for readers may be information on how to catch, raise, and observe tadpoles from egg to adult, but this solid entry in the Nature Close-Up series also discusses the classification of amphibians, frog families, frog anatomy, life cycle, and endangered status. Pascoe (Freedom of Expression, 1992, etc.) includes simple experiments, e.g., determining whether tadpoles prefer light or dark conditions. The activities stress the careful treatment of the creatures under scrutiny, but some naturalists will question keeping tadpoles in the refrigerator for observation. The text gives safety warnings for collecting specimens in ponds and streams, advising readers to wear shoes or sandals to protect their feet (although one of the young collectors is twice shown wading barefoot in the full-color photographs). Neat facts buoy the text, e.g., a frog closes its eyes when swallowing because it is ``pushing with its big eyeballs, to help force the food down its gullet.'' Many photographs are appealing, but it is hard to see the changes from tadpole to frog in one major sequence because the leafy green background obscures essential details. Nevertheless, an especially handsome cover will attract young readers. (glossary, further reading, index) (Nonfiction. 8-10) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
