SAMPLE LYRICS AND ARTWORK
FROM THE STUDY BOOK

Where Are the Frogs?
It began in the first garden
Where the soft rain fell, sweet and crystal clear.
Flowers grew, colored ev'ry hue;
But there was no cheer...no one singing here.

Then came the frogs, tapping toes upon the logs,
Putting rhythm in the air with an amphibian flare.
First they cleared their throats, coughing in toadish croaks.
Then the croaking turned to song...and that how music was born!
