Amanda looked out of her window at the rain.
'I won't be able to go for a walk today' she grizzled.
Mother said 'See what I have for you. Here are a green raincoat, green rubber boots and a green umbrella with froggy eyes.'
'Goody' cried Amanda. 'Can I put them on now?'
'Of course you can' said mother.
So Amanda put her feet in the green rubber boots, put on her raincoat and mother helped her do up the buttons. Then she took the green umbrella and opened it. The black and white froggy eyes made her laugh.
'Now I can go walking in the rain with my froggy umbrella.'
Mother put on her red raincoat and her red rubber boots and got out her red umbrella They walked out into the street.
Amanda laughed as her boots squelched in the wet grass and splashed through puddles on the road. It was fun walking in the rain. All anyone could see were two legs under the green froggy umbrella.
A dog came and sniffed her legs, then ran away when he saw the black and white eyes look at him on top of the green umbrella.
The postman rode along on his small motor bike.
"What have we here under the froggy umbrella?'
'I am Amanda Mr postman. Have you any letters for me today?
'I'll put them in your post box so they don't get wet Enjoy your walk Miss green froggy girl' said the postman He puttered off on his way to put letters in other letterboxes.
Amanda and mother walked to the corner shop. 'What have we here' said Mr Brown behind the counter, pretending to be frightened.
'It's my new froggy umbrella' said Amanda. He won't hurt you.'
'Frogs like rain. Here's a chocolate frog to eat on your walk.'
'Thank you Mr. Brown' Amanda liked Mr Brown who gave her treats.
Mother bought a loaf of bread and some tomatoes to make sandwiches for their lunch
When they arrived home, Amanda said 'that was a fun walk with my green froggy umbrella.
I don't mind if it rains all day.'
