About Amphibians Follows the easy-to-read, informative format of Cathryn and John Sill's other About... books. Describing the basic characteristics all amphibians share, as well as the features that distinguish them, the book explores everything from methods of communication to protection against enemies.

The simply worded text is a wonderful introduction to the world of frogs, toads and salamanders for young children. The beautifully detailed illustrations by John Sill, a noted wildlife illustrator, help bring the animals to life, further educating young readers about what amphibians are, how they live, and what they do. As in the previous About... books, an afterword provides additional information and will inspire readers to learn more.
