FROGAPP-Cvr-SmFrogs are cool. They are also LOUD. And each type of frog has a unique sound. Can you imitate the call of a green frog? A bullfrog? A tree frog? An American toad? The new Noisy Frog Book-App, based on the book Noisy Frog Sing-Along, challenges children to learn frog sounds and match their sound waves with the correct species.

This app is both entertaining and highly educational—perfect for the kid who is fascinated by nature and wants to know more. Did you know that frogs “sing” without ever opening their mouths? This app also introduces children to sound waves and the science of sound.

It expands upon the book Noisy Frog Sing-Along written and illustrated by a frog expert, John Himmelman.  Noisy Frog Book-App is a wonderful introduction to the noisy, busy world of frogs and toads. Plus it’s a perfect way for the whole family to have fun by listening to frogs, imitating them, and identifying them.
