My first book of southern African frogs introduces 55 different types of frogs and includes a CD of their calls. Frogs live just about everywhere – in the wetlands, dams and rivers; in forests, on mountains and even deserts. They can live above ground, underground, up trees or in water.
Every page is dedicated to a single frog. The colorful illustrations encourage you to read the text in one of the four different languages; English, Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa.
In the introduction pages, you find snippets of information relating to the following subjects:
- what types of amphibians are found globally
- the different parts of a frog
- where frogs live
- the life cycle of frogs
- an explanation of how to use the book
Every frog in the My First Book of Southern African Frogs, lists the following information:
- brief description of the frog
- a tracking number so that you can listen to the sound they make on the accompanying CD.
- the types of eggs they lay
- a map of southern Africa highlighting the frogs’ habitat
- one of 3 icons, (a matchstick, hand or forearm) indicate the size of the frog
- pollution, climate or environmental change affects these amphibians, causing them to disappear.
