Critic Reviews

"Herpetologist Caviedes-Solis makes a strong case for looking at frogs with wonder... In tandem with Rancourt’s clear, colorful explanatory illustrations, Caviedes-Solis’ stories enchant as they reveal more and more about the many ways frogs adapt and pass life on to new tadpoles. An impressive primer on one of nature’s most fascinating animal families." Kirkus
