"Cecil Learns to Smile" by Charlotte Bucher

"Cecil Learns to Smile" by Charlotte Bucher brings a classic touch to children's stories. The vibrant and skillful watercolors will really hold youngsters' attention. The main frog is a species from Costa Rico with a colorful anatomy. Since he is small, he is picked on and secluded. However, one day, a man takes the frog's picture and posts it all over the world. The frog then becomes famous. Coincidentally, the frog's family comes to visit him after their current location is jeopardized by predators. When this happens, the frog is in a much better place emotionally and enjoys making friends. This book will inspire little ones to research animals, make the best out of situations, and--most importantly--smile. :)
