5.0 out of 5 stars This is science and mystery!, March 25, 1999
This review is from: Amphibians in Danger (Single Title) (Library Binding)
Amphibians in Danger reminds all readers that frogs, toads, and salamanders have been on Earth for a very, very long time, but that now these amphibians are dying at an alarming rate. This engaging account for young adult and adult readers tells about the work of field scientists, politicians, and even Minnesota school children, who for the past twenty years have attempted to identify the cause of malformed and disappearing amphibians. Could it be global climate changes, erosion of the ozone layer, viruses, bacteria, pesticides, or acid rain? More than 80 colorful photographs and interesting anecdotes of awesome behaviors help the reader appreciate the specialness of the world's amphibians. The scientists engaged in amphibian study take their work seriously, because they know the stakes are high. They are not just trying to save amphibians. This book tells us that they are trying to save us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most excellent --!, January 27, 2000
This review is from: Amphibians in Danger (Single Title) (Library Binding)
Writer Ron Fridell has drawn visibly stunning pictures into the reader's world who may be merely casually interested in frogs. The result: a magical combination of beauty and reality. What has engendered such passionate response? The straight-forward writing coupled with images of live frogs one can almost touch make for a real winner.

This review is from: Amphibians in Danger (Single Title) (Library Binding)
I'm in the 10th grade and found this book very helpful in a recent report I did for biology class. There are great pictures and information I couldn't find anywhere else. It was also cool bringing the book into class to show my teacher. My dad wrote the book, so it was entertaining. Thanks, Sony.
