You're back in school and are bound to have book reports to do. Here are a few books the Yak recommends:
* Do you like to camp? Be sure to pack "The Night Book: Exploring Nature After Dark with Activities, Experiments and Information," by Pamela Hickman (Kids Can Press, $12.95).
* For Yak's Corner's youngest readers, "Red-Eyed Tree Frog" (Scholastic, $16.95) by Joy Cowley with pictures by Nic Bishop is a simple story with great pictures. It's about a red-eyed tree frog doing its best not to get eaten while looking for dinner in the rain forest.
* Friends of frogs might also like "It's a Frog's Life: My Story of Life in a Pond" by Steve Parker (Reader's Digest Children's Books, $9.99).
