What does an adventurous, red-eyed tree frog do when he suddenly finds his diet of squishy, mushy worms BORING? He sets off exploring Not afraid to try new foods, Little Tree Dude tastes a banana (too mushy ), a berry (too sweet ), and even a nut (no way to crack it ). What will this famished frog find to eat? "Zipping and flipping a dark spot zooms by..." What is it? Something crunchy, not sweet, and the perfect frog treat.
With a nod to concepts such as "diet" and "carnivore/herbivore" and a short glossary of "Frog Facts," Crunchy, Not Sweet is a STEM-themed book for the youngest of readers. It can also be used to encourage the pickiest of eaters to try new foods--just like Little Tree Dude.

Vibrant colors, sing-song rhyme, and fabulously funny frog faces will leave readers captivated by Little Tree Dude's taste-testing adventure through the rainforest.
