Frogs (A Knowledge made clear see thru book) by Sherry Gerstein -NO

Gerstein, Sherry Frogs (A Knowledge made clear see thru book) Egmont, 2015. $12.99. NONFICTION

This book features a ton of simple information about frogs, toads, and even other amphibians. It has a few clear pages that reveal the inside of the frog as well as the metamorphosis process. Stuffed with color illustrations.

I think a child would enjoy reading this book. That being said, its spiral bound, which is a no-go for library circulation, as they break down very easily. Many of the illustrations look low quality, or that they have done a canvas filter in photoshop for some odd reason. The selling point of the clear pages turned out to be minimal and could have easily been done without clear pages. Overall nice for a gift, not so great for a library.
