Many of the more common frogs, toads, turtles, snakes, butterflies, beetles, spiders, and others are included, complete with hi-res macro photos and details on where to find them, what they eat, and how to (or not to) handle them. Along with the photos is an article for adults on how an exposure to nature can be a life teaching in itself, an aid for children (and adults) to develop compassion and kindness toward all beings including each other.
