Something Nice Excerpt:

Tanner the Toad noticed his friend among the lavender blooms and happily hopped over. Once he reached a spot where Tad could see him, Tanner waved and said, “Good morning, Tad.”

Tad smiled at his friend and after reading the pleasant greeting off of his friend’s lips, he replied, “Morning, Tanner! I’m glad you’re up. It’s such a nice day and I’m glad I can share it with my kindest and most adventurous friend.”

Tanner blushed at the compliment, and then added, “and I am looking forward to another adventure with my best friend. What did you have in mind for today?”

Tad finished reading what Tanner had said, then a twinkle sparkled in his eye as he responded, “I want to share something nice with everyone in the forest!”

Tanner smiled and nodded. He thought Tad’s idea was a good one. The two toads continued hopping along their favorite path. Soon they met a friend. George the Turtle slowly wandered toward the toads.
