This classic fable from Russia tells the story of two frog sisters with completely different personalities. One frog is known for being adventurous and impulsive, while the other one is lazy and cautious. A Tale of Two Frogs, written by Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, tells the story of how the two frog sisters literally get in over their heads when they fall into a pail of milk and are trapped. They fall into a precarious predicament and must find a way to save themselves. The lazy and cautious frog practically gives up right away while the adventurous and impulsive frog never gives up. In the end they manage to put their noodles together and persevere.
