Research Notes
“I had a lot of fun researching this book, but whittling all the information down to 1,500 words was a real challenge. I had to really understand what makes amphibians unique, though the book also describes some of the most interesting extremes.”
Reviews
“The six books in this truly outstanding series of nature books for beginning readers are extremely well written and superbly illustrated. Each book gives a good description of the unique features of the anatomy, life history and development of the animal mentioned in the title, as well as of its economic importance.”
