The Ribbit-Ribbit Pond tells the story of a group of Croac-Croac frogs and their arrival at the Ribbit-Ribbit Pond. Concerned about their “otherness,” one Ribbit-Ribbit frog describes how exotic the newcomers are. But after spending time with them, the main character realises that the Croac-Croac frogs and the Ribbit-Ribbit frogs are quite similar. The Ribbit-Ribbit Pond then becomes an intercultural place where all frogs can coexist, regardless of their physical and linguistic differences. The values of respect, openness, and curiosity and discovery are transmitted to children through this story, which are essential to the development of their intercultural communicative competence.
