Texas Bluebonnet Books

              If you like reading about critters, there are several good books on the Texas Bluebonnet list this year.  My favorite is Martina the Beautiful Cockroach by Carmen Deedy.  This charming Cuban Folktale is about a young cockroach who takes her grandmother's advice on choosing a suitor.  The results are quite amusing.  Another favorite is Frogs by Nic Bishop.  This book contains Bishop's amazing photographs of a variety of frogs.  As with the 2 X2 books, the Katy Library has the books on the Bluebonnet list set aside on a special shelf, so they are easy to find.
