Have you ever wondered what the difference was between toads and frogs? Or, maybe as a child you were curious about how frogs ate. Or, maybe your kid wants to know the different sounds that frogs make.
Whatever your question is about frogs, Annette Whipple's new "Truth About" book from Reycraft Books will answer it. With amazing photographs and "Leapin Legs" illustrations on many pages, Annette provides so many answers that you and your child will want to start building a DIY toad house (directions included, of course) immediately!
- More than 100 species of new frogs are discovered each year.
- Some frogs quack. (yes, really. Wood frogs!)
- The Cane toad can lay 30,000 eggs at a time. WOW! That's a lot of babies!
- Frogs invented the frog kick. Duh...
- Some frogs live underground. You're going to have to read the book to find out which ones burrow to stay cool in deserts.
- Sugar in a frog's body acts like antifreeze and keeps it from freezing during the winter.
- Frogs are important to science (see the book for surprising reasons why) and to our ecosystems.
