Elephant is always ready and willing to share her prized possession – a brightly coloured umbrella. But one day whilst Elephant takes a nap, the umbrella is whisked away and goes on an adventure of its own.
When the rain comes, Elephant likes to put up her umbrella and invite her friends underneath. One day the umbrella is swept away by the wind and meets the leopard and the bear, who have very different ideas about how to use its shelter: they think only of how the umbrella will make it nicer for them to hunt and eat. The umbrella knows who it’d rather belong to – but will she find Elephant again, in time for the next downpour?
This heart-warming tale, full of opportunities for discussion, celebrates how sharing can make you happy.
