Product Details


“Harrison uses simple, short sentences to describe bullfrog courtship and development . . . The text lends itself well to reading aloud, with opportunities for sound effects, and the illustrations show well from a distance. A useful addition to a nature-themed storytime.”—Kirkus Reviews

“In Cosgrove’s illustrations, the wide-eyed frogs leap, swim, rest, and sing among blocks of color filled with energetic scribbles that outline the many plants of the wetland environments. Whether full-page illustrations or double-page spreads, the art is full of movement. A page of back matter gives more information about bullfrogs and includes a brief bibliography.” The Horn Book

“Cosgrove’s full-spread illustrations situate cheerful, bulbous bullfrogs at various ages and stages in layered textures shaded mostly in green, blue, and lavender. Endnotes offer facts and resource links, capping this effective conjuring of the bullfrog’s life and aqueous world.” —Publishers Weekly

“Cosgrove’s visuals compliment Harrison’s text; the pictures and words flow together smoothly and offer an attractive presentation. . . . A storytime selection, suitable for the juvenile nonfiction picture book collection.”  School Library Journal
