Frogs and Toads and Friends

As my loyal readers know our family loves libraries. One of the things I love most about them are the presentations they have for kids. This past Saturday Randy Korb, a wildlife educator and author came to our library with a live frog demonstration for kids. He brought in many samples of amphibians native to our area.


Mr. Korb told the story of Blinky, a frog who got hit by a car. His grandson found him and brought it to him and now Blinky makes the rounds with Mr. Korb as an ambassador for frogs.









In addition to Blinky, There were salamanders,



newts,

small frogs,





and big frogs.


It was an informative presentation and very hands on. Sometimes it was even frogs on, as this video will attest.




Charlie and Emma loved every minute of the presentation. Especially when the show was over and they made a presentation of their own.

Randy Korb travels through the Midwest 3-4 times a year with his live frog & monarch butterfly presentations. Learn more about what he does at stcroixwildlife.org.

  1. Sweet! It's always nice to find fans of the less cuddly animals. Whenever someone finds a toad in our yard, everyone comes running to take a look at the critter before we set it somewhere safe. :o)

    Peace and Laughter!
