This book is dedicated to my 6 year old Grandson. I want o give a message to young children that no matter what adversity they encounter there is always a way to solve it. Kimathi the little frog could not compete with the other frogs in his age group. He became sad and depressed until a large bullfrog tells him how to overcome his problem. By following the good advice of a friendly frog and relying on God, he surpasses the other frogs and becomes their leader. God brought forth the natural abilities to jump in Kimathi, just as God will bring out the gifts He’s given to those of His children. Follow Kimathi the frog, as he trains his mind and body to achieve excellence. Barbara attended Andrew Jackson High in Queens New York.
