Pub. Date:
This beginner?s guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of amphibians. In this addition to the acclaimed About? series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what amphibians are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live. With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to a variety of amphibians, from frogs and toads to salamanders and more. An afterword provides details on the animals featured and inspires readers to learn more.
