I can hear them everywhere—

millions, probably  

croaking and chirping and clucking and burping.  

It is SO loud!

My head is full of frogs.

I Like the Weather series

I like rainy rivers in the street and muddy puddles for my feet.

I like splattering and splashing!

I like running, leaping, laughing!

Birth of the Bicycle

The bicycle’s great grandpa was a heavy, clunky thing

with wooden wheels and wooden spokes,

a wooden frame and wooden yoke.
