Near one Cattail
Teachers! Here’s another “field trips between covers” from Tony Fredericks, a funny but very astute professor. Here he visits wetlands inhabited by leaping frogs and zip-zipping dragonflies. Teachers will appreciate the accurate science and great illustrations. Kids will appreciate the humor and cadence of the text, while learning how the wetland creatures interact in their “community.” Two pages of “Field Notes” and “fun facts” at the back of the book offer intriguing information on these creatures.
