The Garden
– Arnold Lobel

Frog was in his garden. Toad came
walking by.
“What a fine garden you have, Frog.’
he said.
” Yes” said Frog, It is very nice,
but it was hard work.”
“I wish I had a garden,” said Toad.
“Here are some flower seeds. Plant
them in the ground,” said
Frog, “and soon you
will have a garden.”
“How soon?” asked Toad.
“Very soon,” said Frog.

Toad ran home. He planted the flower seeds.
“New seeds,” said Toad, “start growing.”

Toad walked up and down a few times.
The seeds did not start to grow.
Toad put his head close to the ground
and cried, “Now seeds, start growing!”
The seeds did not start to grow.
Toad put his head very close to the
ground and shouted, “NOW SEEDS START
GROWING!”

“My seeds will not grow,” said Toad.
“You are shouting too much,” said frog.
“These poor seeds are afraid to grow.”
