Here is a story for my four year old nephew, Jacob...
Once upon a time, (5 years and 4 months ago to be exact!) there was the beginning of a small garden.
Two overturned flower pots were placed near a saucer of water, in hopes that a toad would come by and say, "Look, a house just for me!"
The years went by, the garden grew and grew and soon you couldn't even see the toad house.
The saucer of water also disappeared and now there was a small pond, with lily pads, goldfish and a little girl, who never gave up hope of having a toad friend.
One day, her wish came true, for nestled in among the ivy, ferns and garden shoes were...
...two friendly eyes looking out at her! They seemed to be saying, "Look, a house just for me!" He was given the name Todd and he made himself right at home!
The garden shoes were converted into a bathtub and Todd loved to have an afternoon soak in the cool water!
But his favorite time of day was when the sun went down.
It was the perfect time for a evening swim with his friends, the goldfish!
And everyone lived happily ever after!
