From Booklist

Frogs--those tailless, hopping amphibians with which most of us are familiar. But what makes a frog a frog? The Behlers, writing team and conservationists, have written an homage to the close to 5,000 species of frogs. They range in size from Africa's goliath frog (a seven-pound, foot-long giant) to the Brazilian flea frog (a mere one-half-inch long) and come in almost every color imaginable. Written to accompany a popular traveling museum exhibit, the book showcases the wonder and beauty of frogs. The first chapter examines what makes a frog and provides a nice primer to frog biology. Three chapters survey courtship and the metamorphosis of tadpole to frog, feeding and physiology, and camouflage and predator avoidance. The bulk of the book is a nice look at the frog families of the world, with descriptions of each family and representative species. The final two chapters discuss the problems of declining amphibian populations worldwide and why frogs are important. Sidebars throughout the text provide more information, and "frogfacts" in each section furnish fun trivia. Lavishly illustrated. Nancy Bent

Format: Hardcover
If you are into frogs like me, you'll enjoy this book very much. Excellent pictures, great narrative and a wealth of information about these incredible creatures. Too bad, humans are destroying their habitats in the jungles. The other book about frogs with a lot more pictures is "Frogs" by David Badger. This is also a winner!

Format: Paperback
This book (hardcover) has a beautiful lay out, well written text (nice letter type !) and especially the stunning photography!
This together makes it in my view one of the best (general) frog books on the market today.
Please do note the word "general", the information is targeted at anyone with an interest in frogs in general, a broad audience.
Which should work fine in this case.

I teach 6th grade and have this in my science reading corner. My students enjoy the book,and it is written close to their grade level; however the book is enjoyble to me as an adult and nature lover as well. It begins by a thoughrough introduction to frogs and amphibians. The book then delves into frog classification. The photos and diagrams are plentiful with many phottos of rare and unusual frogs.
