Red-eyed Tree Frog (Scholastic Bookshelf) - Joy Cowley The text in Red-eyed Tree Frog is very simple, which was great, because it, coupled with Nic Bishop's lovely photos, made this story very digestable and interesting for my four year old nephew. The kids were really engaged by the Red-eyed tree frog's adventure through the rainforest, and not only were they interested in him, but they were also interested in the many creatures he met along his path. Frankly, I was rather surprised at how quickly and completely this book did capture them, but the photos are so colorful, and the text is so elegantly simplistic, that really I should be surprised that I was surprised. Definitely a great non-fiction animal book for the pre-school and early elementary school set.
