Don’t judge this Cybils 2008-2009 NonFiction Picture Book category winner by its cover.

This gorgeously photographed and casually narrated ramble through the often mindboggling traits, anatomy, actions, stats and abilities of the humble frog family will change your view of frogs forever.

Be sure to check out the complete list of 2008-09 Cybils winners in all nine categories.

HOTLINE VOICES: Librarian Peggy Northcraft believes that part of who she is as an adult, today, is because of the Anne of Green Gables series (by Lucy Maud Montgomery).  Be sure to listen to our documentary, Before Green Gables and the 100th anniversary of Anne Shirley.

This is what’s great about the Cybils and about your podcast – here’s a book that I really wouldn’t have bothered to even pick up but now that it’s won an award, been highlighted, and “hand-sold” to me, I can’t wait to get it and read it with my daughter!
Bravo Mark and Andrea!

My daughter and I love this book. The pictures are fantastic, extraordinary, out of this world. I could go on. Nic Bishop Spiders is also really good although it might make you a bit jumpy. He does some of the same things to get the pictures including raising some of the spiders in his own.
