Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Pocket Guide to Familiar Reptiles and Amphibians?
Wonderful pocket guide, just what we were looking for! Oct 22, 2007
We have been volunteers for an environmental group monitoring frog populations this past Spring. This guide is great for field work such as that as well as being useful to us as we travel with our camper or just in our own area. Highly recommend!
Good beginner's book May 5, 2005
This is a good book for beginners with close-up photographs, not drawings. It is pocket size and great for getting children interested in wildlife. However, it covers too broad an area to be comprehensive. We regularly see snakes, frogs and skinks in our yard that are not included here- whereas we don't need to be able to readily identify snakes that do not live in this area. If you need more complete coverage, I recommend the Peterson field guide for your specific area.
Great quick reference Feb 23, 2005
Nice quick reference for id of the more common species - a map of the US is shown so you can see how far distributed the species is. A short description is provided along with idenfication markings, similar species, habitat.
All the books in this series are great for kids! Jul 15, 2000
My 8-year-old son loved the first book I bought him in this series so much I've bought him nearly the entire series. It has the animals' pictures and their information on facing pages, so you don't have to flip back and forth between pictures/information as with many field guides.
