San Jose artist Leah Jay has created a beautiful book called “Amphibian Love”, filled with dazzling nature art to help endangered animals. Amphibians are vital to the earth’s ecosystems, and their loss is an indicator of the worldwide trend in decreasing biodiversity – the “Sixth Extinction”.
The hardbound book features detailed watercolor and chalk pastel illustrations of various species of amphibians, including frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. The rhyming text within the illustrations makes each piece to be both attractive and educational. This book will be a great resource for young readers to interest them in these fascinating animals and makes an excellent addition to anybody’s coffee table!
Half of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to SAVE THE FROGS!, so please go order your copy today!
The Amphibian Love book campaign page is active through the month of April, with a book pre-order option of $35, and other art-based incentives including the original paintings. The April campaign coincides with Earth Day, 4/22, and International Save the Frogs Day, 4/25.
