Dr. Tyrone Hayes has been interested in frogs since he was a boy. His path from a segregated town in South Carolina to science labs at the most competitive universities was not an easy one, but Hayes's persistence and dedication to his subject helped him prevail. Now a professor in Berkeley, California, Dr. Hayes studies the effects of pesticides on frog populations. "Even if you don't care about frogs, you have to wonder how this affects us, too," Dr. Hayes says. Glossary. Ideas for helping local frog populations. Web sites. Resources for educators. Full-color photographs. A 2010 NCTE Orbis Pictus Honor Book. A 2010 ALA Notable Children's Book.
