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

On an awesome autumn time, a frog and a toad awake within their split homes to locate that their yards are filled up with dropped leaves.

A frog and a toad awake in their separate houses to find that their yards are filled with fallen leaves on a cool autumn day. The frog and toad (conveniently known as Frog and Toad) see one another each and every day, as they are specially synchronized: rather than clean his or her own garden, each chooses to go directly to the other’s home to rake up the leaves here as a sort shock for their buddy. But, unbeknown to either of these, after the raking is completed so when they’re walking back into their respective domiciles, a wind comes and undoes all their time and effort, making their yards as leaf-strewn as these were at the start. Neither has in any manner of once you understand for the other’s act that is helpful and neither knows that his or her own helpful work happens to be erased. But Frog and Toad both feel satisfied believing that they’ve done the other a turn that is good.

This story, called “The Surprise, ” appears in “Frog and Toad All Year, ” a book that is illustrated of stories by Arnold Lobel which was very first posted in 1976.
