Amazon.com Review

Teddy bears and ducklings, eat your heart out--there's nothing cuter than a red-eyed tree frog. And award-winning photographer Nic Bishop (The Secrets of Animal Flight) roamed through the rain forests of Central America with rolls and rolls of high-speed film to prove it. Preschoolers will be captivated by the slice-of-life story that Joy Cowley and Bishop tell of this adorable amphibian: "Here is an iguana. Frogs do not eat iguanas. Do iguanas eat frogs? The red-eyed tree frog does not wait to find out." Sharp close-up photographs of near misses with a snake, a long froggy leap, a moth lunch, and a little, eyelid-exposing nap mesh perfectly with Cowley's engaging narrative. The "Did You Know?" section in the back recounts the ins and outs, ups and downs of tree-frog life. (Ages 3 to 5) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3-In a tropical rain forest in Central America, a red-eyed tree frog spends the night looking for food while avoiding potential predators. Bishop's high-speed photographic techniques transport viewers to this distant world and allow them to see other creatures from the tree frog's perspective. Larger-than-life images document the hunt, brought to a satisfying conclusion as the well-camouflaged frog settles among the leaves to spend the daylight hours in sleep. Cowley's simple text provides a narrative arc for the amazingly sharp, clear photos. Those who want more information can consult the two pages of explanations that follow the story. Accessible to a much younger age group than most books about rain forests, this volume will also attract older readers because of the striking visuals.

The cover photograph of an alert red-eyed tree frog immediately captures attention and invites one into the book. The close-up photographs are of great clarity and interest with one or two sentences of simple text for each one. Shown are some other animal life forms in the frog's habitat. These are introduced as are the frog's daily cycles, its prey, and its enemies. It shows how the frog eludes them. This book concludes with "Did You Know?" which is two pages with facts about its habitat, physiology and life cycle, which were not covered in the story. This section includes small photographs that illustrate its size, toe suckers, and how it sleeps blending into the environment with its unusual eyes closed. This truly delightful book gives a surprising amount of information. It would appeal to any age level, though its simple text is designed for a younger audience. It would also be an excellent addition for English Language Learners or other Special Needs people. This wonderful introduction of this endearing creature is sure to be loved by frog aficionados. I highly recommend this book.

Last night, when I was going to give a bed time story to my daughter at the age of four, she stopped me and told me what she witnessed that day. She said, "Daddy, you know the red-eyed frog? That's really weird. It checked out an ant, a caterpillar, a grasshopper and even a snake. The snake almost ate it. You must be scared!" I told it to my wife. She said, "Well, Amazon's package arrived today. She just found and took out a "Red-Eyed Tree Frog" among other books. She seemed to like it." My daughter is a Japanese kid and cannot speak nor read English. But surely this book attracts attention of any small ones.

The photography is wonderful. However, it is not a book for a child past 1st grade. There is one short simple sentence on each page. The description said preschool - 3rd grade. My book/animal loving 3rd grader did not take interest in the book.

You see the front cover. The rest of the book is like that: beautiful, vivrant images of the star, a lone red-eyed tree frog.
The "Red-Eyed Tree Frog" introduces us to a tint frig with wide eyes, and a few adventures he has. He contemplates eating an ant, swallows a moth, and narrowly escapes being munched by a snake.
The photographer should get the kudos here, as though there is text, it is the pictures which are the prize. The storyline is bland, unpoetic, but the photos are amazing. We see the frog flying in mid-air, and with his foot being tasted by the snake, and a moth pre- and mid-lunch. There is a cool shot of the frog with his eyes closed, as the frog sleeps, and the odd film covering its eyes.
It is a real look at a day in the life of one tree frog.

Immediately, just from the vivid close up picture of the Red-eyed Tree Frog, the reader is drawn in and invites young readers to open the book. The book is filled with great photos and small short sentences full of information on this little creature. It shows the life cycle of the frog as well as photos of its fellow inhabitants in the jungle, both its predators and preys. The reader will enjoy the bright story of the Red-eyed Tree frog and how it lives its daily lives, from what eats to how it avoids detection from its adversaries. The book ends with a "Did You Know" section filled with all the other information that the reader can ever want to know about the Red-eyed Tree Frog. This is a great book to have in your easy reader section of your class library and Joy Cowley did a superb job.

This book had amazing life like pictures. I think it would be a great read for Pre-K-Second grade. I read this book to my one year old and she was afraid to touch the pictures. Once she realized that the frog wasn't moving she relaxed and enjoyed it. I like how Cowley went through to show what a tree frog might eat or what might eat a tree frog. The last two pages of the book were very informative by talking about the frogs habitat.

Red-Eyed Tree Frog is an excellent first reader about the American tropics. It tells a story about the realistic food chain relationships of the red-eyed tree frog and outstanding photographs of Amazon animals. Following the story there is additional information on the red-eyed tree frog. It's a must for children who love frogs and American rainforests.

My 2 year old likes to yell, "Look out frog," "Jump," and "Crunch, crunch, crunch," at the appropriate pages. My four year old likes it, too. The pictures are nice and vibrant. This is one of their favorites.
