Welcome to the Non-Fiction Monday Round Up! I’m thrilled to be hosting this week. Add a link to your post in the comments and I’ll update throughout the day. Here’s my book for the week:
After seeing tadpoles in a friend’s water garden, we wanted to learn more about frogs. I’d read several great reviews of Nic Bishop’s Frogs so we checked it out from the library. I read it to M a few nights ago and we were both stunned by the amazing photographs. We learned lots of cool facts about frogs and marveled over the hard work Bishop put in to get the shots he wanted for the book. I was so excited about what I’d learned that I regaled my husband with frog facts after the girls were in bed :)
