687. Flying Frogs: a meditation and bedtime story

Fernando Frog wants to learn something that peeper frogs don’t normally do — he wants to fly how to fly!

Flying Frogs Excerpt:

It was a calm late morning on Ahway Island.  The sun was rising high in the sky, warming all the plants and animals that lived in the forest.  Fernando Frog had just finished singing one of his favorite songs and was now resting on a log on the edge of the water of the pond where he lived.  Fernando stretched out his back legs as he watched the reflection of the sun on the pond’s surface. The glittering light made Fernando feel grateful to live in such a beautiful forest.

Suddenly, Fernando heard a rustling noise in the trees nearby.  Fernando looked to see where the noise was coming from.  In the branches of the trees, he saw a little baby bird with fluffy brown wings and a little bit of red on its chest.   The little bird sprang from one branch to another, flapping his wings with determination.

Fernando decided to hop closer to the tree to greet the baby bird.

“Hello, up there!” Fernando called.
