PreS-Gr 1-This picture book has a fun, simple text replete with froggy sounds and a rhythm and rhyme or near-rhyme that give it a pleasant, poetic flavor. The book presents the life (from mating to birth to growth) of a common frog while featuring illustrations of the leopard frog, spring peeper, and bullfrog. The typeface is arranged to reflect the creatures' activities, alternately leaping across the page or growing larger or smaller with the volume of the animal's songs. The attractive, full-color drawings with richly colored backgrounds add to the feeling of the cool quiet of night or of the private, underwater world of the pond. A brief section at the back of the book offers facts in a question-and-answer format on a higher reading level. This title doesn't have as much information as Douglas Florian's Discovering Frogs (Scribners, 1986) and the illustrations cannot compare as a presentation of science with the stunning detail of the photographs found in Karen Wallace's Tale of a Tadpole (DK, 1998). However, it will work well in a storyhour, where it will pair well with Robert Kalan's Jump, Frog, Jump (Greenwillow, 1995) or Barbara Ann Porte's Tale of a Tadpole (Orchard,1997).-Stephanie Bianchi, National Science Foundation Library, VA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
