Frogs by Nic Bishop; published by Scholastic, New York; 2008.

Nic Bishop is at his best with photo essays such as this one.  The deep, frog green end pages set us up for bright and vivid images that bleed off every page.  There is even a double fold-out in the middle of the book to capture a frog’s leap.  The information is presented in easy to read font and sometimes color is used to highlight pertinent information.  Bishop’s enthusiasm for frogs is apparent in every picture, in every word, and in every layout in this remarkable book.

I would use this in a display about amphibians, in pathfinders, and even as examples of images for a photography program for children.
