Ted the Friendly Frog lives by a pond and spends his froggy days playing with his friends, hopping in the grass, and swimming very fast. One day, Ted's grandfather tells Ted something important - he's going away for a few days, and could Ted look after his special diamond? Ted must not play with the diamond with his friends or even show anyone, for it is an old tradition to pass the diamond down to the next frog in the family, and it's a very valuable stone. In this bouncing and rhyming tale, Ted learns the important lesson of listening to his family, even if it is more fun to play, and it is never too late to learn from a mistake.

About the Author
Scott McCall was born and raised in Crockett, Texas, a small town that sits in the middle of East Texas. After high school he went to the San Diego Golf Academy of Arizona, where he received an Associate's Degree in Business, which led to him teaching golf. In his late 20s, he and his father started Mobile Glaucoma Solutions, which grew to a national company spreading across 30 states. Scott was the president and part-owner of the company from 2003 to 2013. Scott is now an optometric technician at his father’s optometry practice. He likes to travel, hunt, golf and coach his 7-year-old son’s sports teams. Just last year, Scott started writing short stories to help his son learn how to read. Together they wrote some stories that rhymed. It was from this experience that the idea of Ted the Friendly Frog evolved.
