Nic Bishop Frogs


NIC BISHOP FROGS; Nic Bishop; New York: Scholastic, 2008; 48 pgs. Non-Fiction
Nic Bishop is a premier nature photographer and this new book will be a dream to any child interested in the natural world. Frogs ranging from the bullfrogs of his native Michigan to the strawberry dart poison frog of Central America, fill these pages with splendid pictures alongside accessible and interesting information. Did you know that African bullfrogs can weigh as much as a newborn, and that frogs can be partially frozen and live through the winter because of an anti-freeze like substance in their blood?
