Laura Simms has collected animals stories from all over the world. And you're sure to recognize this story from West Africa, or at least elements of it. This is a story about a monkey who is a great cook, manages a home well, and has a friend who is a frog. But Mr. Frog is lazy. So it sounds a little bit like the old story of "The Grasshopper and the Ants", the story we brought you earlier from Donna Washington. The truth is, some of the stories that we love the most from one place have echoes in stories all over the world. We hope this story reminds you of other stories you know and love.
