This title is intended for ages 6-12. Frogs live both in water and on land and require not one, but two, safe and healthy habitats in which to live and find food. It's no wonder then that some frogs are in danger. This important book explains how sensitive frogs are to changes in their environments and why people need to protect them. Children will be fascinated to learn: where frogs live and what they eat; how tadpoles turn into frogs; the dangers of habitat destruction, pollution, and climate change; how people are helping frogs.

Grade 3–5—Lucid texts explore the problem of vanishing wildlife in a series of two-page sections, focusing on small, but key, members of the food chain. In large, easy-to-read print, each title presents basic facts about the animals (e.g., their outstanding physical and behavioral characteristics, natural habitats, diets, etc.) and then outlines the factors involved in their decline. Closing sections briefly describe conservation efforts worldwide and suggest practical ways readers can help. Illustrations of these endangered species-a mix of clear color photographs and drawings-appear on almost every page; most are identified by common names in captions. The first two titles also include diagrams of the animals' life cycle; Insects includes shots of a variety of wildlife habitats. While general introductions to these animals often have short sections on endangered species, such as Martin Schwabacher's Butterflies and Frogs (both Benchmark, 2004), the information is, of necessity, limited. Jen Green's Endangered Butterflies (Benchmark, 1999) covers similar material and provides more detail on physical characteristics; however, the Crabtree book has a greater emphasis on the environmental factors threatening the insects and is more succinctly written. Useful additions to natural-history collections.—Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library

"In keeping with the high standards set by Bobbie Kalman the Earth's Endangered Animals books are powerful non-fiction reading for upper elementary children....The photographs, diagrams, and sketches are, as usual, bright, uncluttered, and focused on the aspect being discussed....The web sites are easy to access, and the suggestions are doable without being condescending. The Endangered series would be an excellent place to begin a first research project. The books reviewed would be welcomed in any elementary or middle school library."
