Yep, April is National Frog Month. According to the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, it makes perfect sense, since we’re right in the thick of amphibian breeding season, and soon we’ll start seeing tadpoles. That is, if we’re apt to be wandering around outside, checking out ponds and puddles.
What does this have to do with your library? We’ll, we’ve got lots of “frog” books:
- Frogs: a chorus of colors (a juvenile books about the world of frogs)
- Frog and toad are friends (from the early reader series)
- The Princess and the frog (the 2010 hit movie)
- Loch Ness monsters and raining frogs : the world’s most puzzling mysteries solved (the title says it all)
- Half asleep in frog pajamas (a novel with aSeattle connection bySkagitValley’s own Tom Robbins)
- The frog prince (a brand-new popular paperback that Booklist calls “entertaining and witty”)
- and of course, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County by Mark Twain
So, jump on in to the library and check out these or other frog titles, and celebrate National Frog Month. Maybe it’ll bring spring on faster.
