We had another friendly visitor to our house this week and he was toad-i-ly fun! He’s brown and he hops around and his skin is all bumpy. Can you guess what I’m talking about?
If you said a toad, you are absolutely right! I was working in my flower bed when he hopped out of a hole and startled me. Has that ever happened to you? People used to say that if you picked up a toad, it would give you warts…but that is NOT true. (He might “pee” on you though!) Toads are actually a good thing to have around because they eat bugs! Here is a closer look at him although he was trying to hide in the grass so I wouldn’t see him.
He’s pretty cool, isn’t he? You can see him pretty well when he is in the green grass. But look at this toad when he is in the dirt.
Can you spot him? He’s harder to see, isn’t he?
