How Do You Know?

Research Notes
“I’ll never forget my first encounter with a frog. I was floating near the edge of a lake on a raft when I spotted two big eyes peeking out of a dark pipe. I was so startled that I screamed. Little did I know that, a few days later, my brother and I would be catching them by the dozen.

“Even today, frogs are still among my favorite creatures. I guess that’s why I’ve written several books about them. But this is the first time I’ve really focused on the differences between toads and other kinds of frogs.”
