Puerto Rican Coquí
The first book that I purchased on our beloved coquí was Everywhere Coquis!/¡En dondequiera coquies! by Nancy Hooper. I read this book to my son’s preschool class during the Week of the Young Child celebration at his school. It was perfect for the little ones because they all loved repeating the famous chirp of “coquí, coquí.” The song of a tiny tree frog that is native to Puerto Rico (and that has been introduced in Hawaii, too) is music to our ears. The coquí is also a Puerto Rico symbol that you can see represented in the form of a Taíno petroglyph on the main image of this post.
Below you’ll find lots of resources to complement a study unit on Puerto Rico or on amphibians:
