Read full description of the books The Case of the Vanishing Golden Frogs: A Scientific Mystery:As a scientist, and a mother, I love this book. And, equally, if not more importantly, so did my 6-year-old daughter. Through engaging prose and vivid photography, Markle describes the importance of the Panamanian golden frog to Panama culture, the discovery that the frog was becoming extinct, and current efforts underway to save this species.
We all enjoyed this story because the story reads like a mystery - it is incredibly engaging.
I enjoyed this story because of the way Markle describes the scientific process: observation; hypothesis, testing the hypothesis; not find the results to support the hypothesis; generating a new hypothesis (repeat). In fact, at the end of the book - there are still lots of questions, and Markle challenges the readers, "Perhaps, one day, one of you will become the science detective who finally stops this killer." My daughter instantly said, "Yes, that's what I want to be when I grow up - a science detective!"
I recommend this book to elementary school aged children and their families as a great way to learn about science, frogs, and conservation.
