Travel to Puerto Rico to meet Rafi Coqui the tiny tree frog who performs magic tricks for his sister Rosi. First he mysteriously sorts the gray sand on the beach into separate neat black and white piles with his magical fingers; then he uses his bow and arrow to shoot down the stars from the sky into the sea. In the last chapter itís Rosiís turn to save the day. She performs a little magic of her own when Rafiís hermit crab escapes. Read Rafi and Rosi to learn these magic secrets and some science along the way.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2005-2006)
