Summary

The Frog is a fine swimmer, so good that he attracts the admiration of the local tadpoles, who beg him to teach them how to swim. But teaching is all he ever does - the tadpoles never learn, and he himself finds he no longer has the time to do the swimming he loves. This story shows how codependency and pride can hijack life.

This is the eighth of The Animal Parables series. Each tale features an animal who finds that things turn out to be quite different from how it imagined, and profound life lessons are learned along the way. These seven, life-affirming tales will delight young minds and leave adults moved to reflection. In this collection, Martin Day has rediscovered the power of the parable to layer deeper meanings under the skin of a simple narrative. In doing so, he has created a collection of stories that sound at multiple levels. It’s like the delight of finding that second tray under the first in a box of chocolates!

A great little tail

The frog who got out of his depth is a great listen, and is definitely worth the time. Its a heart warming story about the trials, tribulations, and Life lessons learned. Martin’s voice and British accent is as smooth as silk, and is very easy on the ears. He manages to perform the different voices needed to bring his story to life, and has my stamp of approval. My only criticism is that its a shame that this story is not part of the Animal parables Collection. If you are an adult, young child, or just a kid at heart, then I highly recommend this book.
