"Breathtaking.... This is a very fine easy-reading introduction to amphibians that will be savored by young viewers and teachers."
"As well suited to young children as its predecessors.... The attractive, dignified portraits of the animals in their habitats and the straightforward, informative approach of the text make the book an attractive resource for primary-grade students, yet still simple enough for much younger children to enjoy.... A useful addition to a solid science series."
"Inviting, informative, and eye-catching."
