Kissing Frogs

The new Disney movie about the princess and the frog is in theaters now, but the story has its roots in two very old folk tales -- one from Germany and one from Russia. In addition to enjoying the movie this holiday season -- you might try out the traditional tales as well. You won't find a trumpet-playing alligator in either of these stories -- but both include their fair share of frog kissing!
