Research Notes
“After the success of A Place for Butterflies, my editor asked suggested a companion title about birds and asked if I could think of other interesting animals to feature in future titles. Frogs immediately came to mind. These little amphibians are in trouble globally for a wide variety of reasons, so I had no trouble coming up with examples for the book. In fact, the problem was trying to decide which ones to leave out. I chose examples from a variety of habitats and geographic areas. I was delighted to work with illustrator Higgins Bond for a third time. Her rich, colorful paintings really bring frogs to life. I especially like the one that looks like it’s jumping right off the cover of the book.”
