Excerpt from the story —
"I wonder how high Frog can jump," said Rosemary.
"That’s an interesting thought," laughed Basil. "Let’s ask him!"
—Me pregunto a qué altura puede saltar Rana —dijo Romera.
—Eso es una idea interesante —rio Albahaca—. ¡Preguntémosle!
The Pansy sisters turned their blue faces towards Frog.
"Frog!" they shouted in harmony. "Jump!"
Las hermanas pensamiento giraron sus caras azules hacia Rana.
—¡Rana! —gritaron a la vez—. ¡Salta!
Frog looked down at the plants in the little blue flowerpot.
"Me?" asked Frog. "I can’t jump."
The plants thought that Frog must be shy; they all knew that frogs could jump.
Rana miró hacia abajo a las plantas en la pequeña maceta azul.
—¿Yo? —preguntó Rana—. Yo no sé saltar.
Las plantas pensaron que Rana debía ser tímido; todos ellos sabían que las ranas saben saltar.
