Amazing photographs and detailed text make this not only a go-to resource but also a fun read for curious kids. As an adult I enjoyed learning about opossum, yapok, kangaroo (including tree kangaroo!), koala, numbat and many other types of marsupials. Includes index, glossary.

Amazing photographs combined with kid friendly text on all types of frogs. While a great deal of information is shared, the use of varied type size and color helps to break up the text making it less daunting for young readers. Really neat 2 page spread where the author shares how he researched the topic, prepared to take photos, and some of his favorite moments when writing the book. Includes index, glossary.
