Fabulous Frogs by Martin Jenkins - ESSENTIAL



Jenkins, Martin  Fabulous Frogs  Illustrated by Tim Hopgood Candlewick Press, 2015.  $16.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

This is a look at some of the more interesting frogs in the world.  The first couple of pages describe the basic qualities of all frogs, including their tadpole stage.  Then throughout the rest of the book there are different interesting frogs.  They are labeled and then a short paragraph gives further details about that frog.  The illustrations are fantastic and the writing style is entertaining.  The author uses first person, but it works with the story and makes the reader feel like they are learning from a friend.  Good stuff!
