Legal Frogs by Isaac Armstrong is a fabulous book about endangered frogs and the importance of protecting them. I have read numerous books on amphibians written for both children and adults and this is undoubtedly one of the best. As an added bonus, the author dedicates a portion of the revenues to amphibian education efforts in Ghana by supplying free copies of the books to volunteers who visit schools to teach students about amphibians and environmental conservation.
A message from the author, Isaac Armstrong:
“I am very proud to be working with your team on this project. This is just the beginning of greater things to come. Thank you for inspiring me to write about these frogs – it is one of the most meaningful writing projects I have ever worked on. My company has commended me for my initiative and they have pledged to support me all the way through.”
Followup message from Isaac:
“I wish to inform you that the book launch went very well and we were able to raise funds to print the first 500 free copies to be given to the schools in your catchment area. The plan is to do a reading and writing festival in the localities you work with and then after donate the books to the schools. I will need some of your team members to work with on planning and execution. I will bring along personnel from my NGO to support, plus the books. What we need from your team is to mobilize the schools and arrange the venue for the event. Kindly let me know what you think about this so we can proceed with project initiation. Thank you.”
Enjoy the book!
