Frogs / text by David Badger ; photography by John Netherton.
Stillwater, MN : Voyageur Press, c1995.
[MCL call number: 597.89 B135fn 1995; eighteen copies, no holds]

This is a picture book about frogs. It has text too, and the small amount that I’ve read is interesting, informative, and convincing. But really all I’ve concentrated on is looking at the heartbreakingly lovely frog photographs, from the beginning to the end and then right back to the beginning again. Frogs begins with an introduction, an essay about frogs and people, a section on frog characteristics and behavior, and finally a section with detailed descriptions of 37 frog families and species. There is a note about the decline of amphibian populations, a nice appendix about photographing frogs, a bibliography, and a competent index.
