An entertaining tale that explores the consequences of showing off

In a pond at the bottom of a muddy field there lived a frog named Boris. He was big and strong and handsome, but he was also boastful. Boris could do anything. He could jump, swim, and dive better than anyone else—or so he said. But one day his boasting got the better of him!


"This is not only a humorous story young readers will find amusing--there's a solid message here too that you'll want to discuss with your child.", 2/6/2016
