Steppin' on Frogs
By: Linda Murphy
Steppin’ on Frogs explains to children that we can’t always control the noises our bodies make. We all hiccup, we all burp, and we all pass gas. It’s all natural and nothing to make a big deal about. With a little humor, this story brings to light the normalcy of children passing gas and how it can be compared to the sound of stepping on frogs. The readers will get a few giggles out of this and a better understanding that it’s okay to pass gas, even if you are at school. The author hopes readers realize that we can take an embarrassing situation and learn to laugh a little at ourselves and life.
