Frog and Salamander: A Comparison Story for Kids

published: 12 20 2020
themes: big feelings, growing up

Comparison...we all do it. Except me. I never compare myself to other people. Okay, fine. I do it too. But I'm trying not to! Listen in to hear how Frog comes to realize that all the energy he's put into comparing himself to Salamander - the most famous writer in Wormly Pond - might not be doing him any favors.

If you love this story, please share it with all frogs in your life, anyone still using a typewriter, any and all salamanders with bestselling books, and your friends! They might just need a good story these days. And if you happen to have an Apple device, leave a review in Apple Podcasts!

If your tiny person wants to share a story they've written, please send photos or recordings of it to I'd LOVE to see their artwork, stories, and anything else they'd like to share.

BIG THANKS to the listeners who provided sound effects used in the story: ORLI, SAMI, CALLIE, and her dad, PAUL!
