Say What?

Ribbit.  Who is the best-known amphibian in the world?  Probably Kermit the Frog.  Lots of kids know about him and his favorite pig.  But “frog” isn’t just a word used to tailless amphibians.  ”Frog” is also the word for the pool-like area on the top of bricks that is used to hold mortar that keeps the bricks together.  The next time you see a brick building with its hundreds of bricks, just imagine how many “frogs” there are!
