This book is actually written for the parents. It tells, step-by-step how to make a pond, with your child, for frogs in your backyard. After reading the instructions, I’m not sure what will stop the pond from becoming choked with algae. Having had a fishpond in the past, I know an ecosystem requires a delicate balance between sunshine, pond plants, and the fish that eat the algae. Even with the correct ratio, a filter is usually needed. The instructions here mention nothing about filters.
I think the book should have contained a few paragraphs on safety. Children have been known to drown in backyard ponds.
What was most lacking, were photographs. Not a single one! Not even one of the finished product. At the very least, the text could been broken up by some illustrations.
