The bowl began to rock, And then the bowl began to tilt. And then it tipped, and then it rolled, and they all tumbled out. The tad poles were hopping and jumping, and croaking.
Someone told me,,, that tad poles grow up, and turn into FROGS! But, I knew my tad poles would always be my little tad poles forever and ever but,,,,,, I was so wrong.
Look at this tad pole that grew into a giant frog. My bedroom is full of croaking frogs! What's a Tweedles to do? The croaking is getting louder and louder. And I must do something --- fast! I must do something, before my moms find out . I can't let my moms know, that there are frogs in my bed. That would never do!
And so to the pond,,, we tiptoed through the grass. Big frogs and little frogs all in a row we hopped and walked and tiptoed.
"Look at this nice pond water, I said to Splash, the biggest frog of all. There is a giant lilly pad just for you.
Splash croaked , croaked , and croaked until his voice was hoarse.
and then with a big jump he leaped onto the lilly pad.
Splash, teetered and twirrled and then sat and stared at me. I listened to the croaks as he said over and over.
And so, with a flying hop I jumped as far as I could,,,,
and I landed right on the giant lilly pad, right next to Splash.
"I know your afraid, I said to Splash-
You got used to the little tad pole bowl."
"Once I was afraid, it was when I was a tiny baby, long, long ago.
I had a home where I lived with my brothers and sisters. It was a safe little home And then one day my forever moms came and took me to my forever home. My moms sang to me everyday, and now I am not afraid anymore."
Your a big frog now. This pond is your forever home. Now its time for you to go jump and splash and croak with all your friends. I will come see you everyday- We will be forever friends.
Hi! I used to be three, but now I am six years old! I am a happy puggy.
I live in the forest, and I talk to the trees.
My wish for all the other little animals in the world- is that they have a "forever home", just like me.
I love being loved- and I wish it for you!
