Meet Grandfather Frog!

Grandfather Frog is the wise old man of the river.  He knows everyone, and he knew their parents too... he remembers how everything used to be.

G.F. has lived in his lily pad home in the Smiling Pool since he was a tadpole.  He always wears his suit jacket no matter what the kids' fashion is.  He dispenses wisdom and corny fables, and  he teaches the other animals about life along the river.  

Because he's a frog, he is very sensitive to any pollution in the water.

Inspired by the works of groundbreaking environmentalist children's book writer Thornton Burgess, these stories, games, educational materials teach kids about the beavers living in rivers, ponds, lakes and other wetland environments in a near-boreal region.

Grandfather Frog lives with his friends in the world of Animazia: the amazing story of animals.
