Una guía para niños
English Edition: About Amphibians
Now in Spanish, this beginner’s guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of amphibians. Cathryn and John Sill, the award-winning author and illustrator team that created the About… series, once again introduce young learners to an important group of animals and the habitats where they live.
Educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what amphibians are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live.
Beautifully detailed, realistic paintings by noted wildlife illustrator John Sill illuminate a variety of amphibians (from frogs and toads to salamanders and more), and an afterword provides details on the animals featured, inspiring readers to learn more.
