My kids love exploring outdoors, and any adventure where we discover a new animal, bird or amphibian is a good one! We love the My first book of series, and so were excited to add the new edition of My first book of Southern African Frogs to our collection.
Now that the Spring rains have arrived and the evenings are getting warmer, we’ve noticed the frogs are back in our garden. There have been squeals of delight as we’ve seen them plop inside the pool and we’ve loved being able to check inside our book to see which frogs are visiting us.
You’ll be able to learn about 55 different types of frogs and their calls in this book, there’s even a short introduction to their life cycle. There are lovely colour illustrations of each frog as well as visual clues to its size and eggs. The most awesome thing is that you can scan a QR code to listen to the different calls. There is also a distribution map and an illustrated habitat bar for those wanting to deepen their knowledge of frogs.
I love that for each species there is a short description in four languages (English, Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa), making this book accessible to many different readers in our country.
The My first book of series includes mammals, birds, insects and more, and is an excellent idea for any little one who enjoys learning more about the amazing world of animals and creatures around us.
My first book of Southern African Frogs, written by Jeanne Tarrant and illustrated by Sally MacLarty, is available for R140. It’s recommended for children aged 3 to 10 years.
Thanks to Penguin Random House for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.
