Red-Eyed Tree Frog
I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting non-fiction books to add to my classroom library. Kindergartners love anything with photos, especially with animals. I picked up Red Eyed Tree Frog by Joy Cowley on a recent trip to Cover to Cover. The photographs in this book are bright and colorful; very visually appealing. Joy Cowley starts the story when the frog is waking up and takes you through a day in the life of this frog. She does a great job of introducing other animals living in the same habitat. Joy Cowley uses interesting words but keeps the text simple enough for some Kindergartners and first graders to read themselves.
