Unit 2. The Birds and the Frog. The Frog lives in the river. It has two friends, two big white birds. The birds want to fly to another river. "Good morning, my friends!" says the Frog. "Good morning!" say the birds. "My good friends, take me with you!" says the Frog. "Very well", say the birds. "Do you see this stick? I take one end, my friend takes the other end, and you must take the stick in your mouth in the middle. You must not speak! Don't open your mouth!" So one bird takes one end of the stick, the other bird takes the other end, and the Frog takes the stick in its mouth in the middle. They fly to another river. Some children are in the forest. They see the birds and the Frog in the sky. "Look!" they say. "What have the birds? What is it? It is a big clock!" The Frog opens its mouth and says: "I am not a clock! I am a Frog!" And flop! The Frog falls down!
