Julio Sings Like a Frog Julio was talking with his father. “It’s a nice summer day,” said his dad. “Do you want to walk down to the pond?” “I don’t know,” said Julio. “It’s a little hot to walk that far.” Just then, a blue dragonfly zipped through the air. “I wish we could fly there like that dragonfly.” Well, we could try,” said Dad. He spread his arms and took a running jump. “Nice try,” said Julio, laughing. “But maybe we should walk instead. T353

3. When they reached the pond, Julio heard frogs croaking. “I think I can make that sound. “Julio puffed out his cheeks and let out the air. “Hmm… I don’t really sound like a frog.” “Well, when frogs croak, they are really singing to each other,” said Dad. “I can sing,” said Julio. “I love singing with my friends.” “That’s right, you do. And, remember, people can fly, too. They just need airplanes.” “That is true,” said Julio, “but I still wish I could fly like a dragonfly and sing like a frog.” His father sat down next to the pond. Julio joined him, and they both enjoyed the view. T353
