Gee Gee Bug and the Frog’s ChorusIHP0214
George Garden Bug, Gee Gee for short, asks Professor Jay Tee Frogge about frog songs that he hears in his garden, especially in the early evening after it has been raining. It turns out that most of the frog songs are made by toads, but Gee Gee learns lots of things about how frogs and toads make their calls, even in different languages. Like did you know that in China frogs say guo-guo-guo while in Korea they say gae-gool gae-gool?
