- in varied bold fonts, the frog's sound (TINKTINKTINKTINK! the male midwife toad of Spain "clangs"),
- how a frog takes care of the eggs (in Ecuador, the Surnam toad carries eggs in the skin on its back),
- the role of moisture in the frog's life or the moisture in the frog's habitat (in Borneo, the four-lined tree frog "stirs up a foamy next to keep the eggs moist").
The main idea of this book is that if the sound of frogs is absent from a habitat, there may be environmental problems. In the author's note, Guiberson notes that 1/3 of the world's frogs are "struggling to survive."
There's so many ways to use this book with students - first enjoy it with them. Then use it as a mentor text for writing a tightly focused report with a main idea. For more of my thoughts on teaching with this text, find me by searching sunday cummins wordpress (my blog is Experience Nonfiction) and look at my reviews of k-2 or 3-5 books.

Recommended for all!
The stunning artwork is what drew me to this book. Inside you find information about frogs around the world, especially relating to songs and young. Filled with onomatopoeia it will be a treat to read with younger children. Older readers will be able to take away the extra information in the back of the book that tells stats and facts about the featured frogs.
