The frog and the snake


   The son of the frog jumped in the forest when he saw something new in the way. It was a long and slender animal, and its skin shone with all the colors of the rainbow.

    'Hello'-said the frog-Child. Why are you lying on the path?

    - I sunbathe-replied the other animal, twisting and unrolling. My name is snake- Child. And you?

    I am frog-child. Do you want to play with me?

    So they played all morning in the forest.

    Frog-child taught snake-child to jump and it taught snake-child to drag on the floor and climb trees.

    Then each one went home.

    -Look what I can do, Mom! Frog-Child cried, dragging on its belly.

    - Where did you learn to do that? Asked the mother.

    - Snake-Child taught me. We played in the forest this morning. It is my new friend.

    - Don't you know that the snake family is bad? Asked the mother. They have poison in their teeth. Be careful when you play with them! And I do not want to see you dragging on the floor. That is not right.

    And from that day, frog-Child and snake-Child never play together again. But they often sat alone in the sun,

    Each one remembered that unique friendship day.
