A First Book of Australian Frog Sounds
Australia is fortunate to be a world centre for frog biodiversity, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re five years old or eighty-five – it’s never too late to get to know Australia’s wildlife, and learning the calls that are unique to each species will open your eyes to a whole new world that lives all around us. This beautifully illustrated sound guide is the ideal way to introduce both children and adults, and especially families, to our wonderful frogs.
Each of the 12 species covered – Green Tree Frog, Eastern Dwarf Sedge Frog, Peron’s Tree Frog, Southern Bell Frog, Red Tree Frog, South-eastern Banjo Frog, Striped Marsh Frog, Spotted Marsh Frog, Sudell’s Frog, Ornate Burrowing Frog, Common Eastern Froglet and Cane Toad – has a short description explaining some fascinating facts about that animal, plus a handful of stunning colour photos. Then uniquely, and separating this title from other wildlife sound books, the reader can then press the relevant button on the panel on the side of the book and a burst of the frog’s sound will be played via the built- in speaker.
The book is great fun for all the family and perfect for helping to foster an interest in the amazing wildlife that lives around us. It will appeal to anyone, young or old, who enjoys the natural world and listening to the songs and calls of our wild creatures.
