“Frog and Toad”: An Amphibious party of Same-Sex Love

On a very good autumn day, a frog and a toad awake within their separate homes to get that their yards are full of dropped leaves.

On a very good autumn day, a frog and a toad awake within their split homes discover that their yards are filled up with fallen leaves. The frog and toad (conveniently known as Frog and Toad) see each other everyday, and so are specially synchronized: as opposed to clean his or her own garden, each chooses to go to the other’s home to rake up the leaves here as a sort surprise for their buddy. But, unbeknown to either of these, following the raking is completed and also as they have been walking back into their particular houses, a wind comes and undoes all their perseverance, making their yards because leaf-strewn as these people were at the start. Neither has in any manner of once you understand associated with the other’s helpful act, and neither knows that his own helpful work was erased. But Frog and Toad both feel satisfied thinking that they’ve done one other a turn that is good.

This story, called “The Surprise, ” appears in “Frog and Toad All Year, ” an illustrated guide of children’s tales by Arnold Lobel which was very first posted in 1976.
