The Life Cycle of a Poison Dart Frog

by Anna Kingston

Part of a Series: Nature’s Life Cycles.

The fabulous blue amphibian on the cover of this book is a taste of what’s to come inside: numerous images of jewel-toned and multicolored frogs at various stages of development and in various settings. These occupy full pages opposite text that describes the purpose and use of the frogs’ poison, other physical features such as their sticky feet and tiny size, and the creatures’ life cycle, which is described over several spreads and diagrammed. A plus is the National Geographic website suggested in the further-reading section that offers a video of a frog mother caring for her young.
