Monkey and Elephant Get Better

Monkey and Elephant are very good friends who have a lot in common. They both like morning time. They both like shiny rocks. And they both like to hear their own voices: “TAH. TAH. TAH.” But Monkey is Monkey and Elephant is Elephant. They are not exactly the same. So when Elephant starts to sneeze — achoo! — Monkey has her own ideas of what will make him feel better. And when Monkey gets the sniffles, Elephant has his own ideas of what will make her feel better. Maybe there’s more than one way to enjoy a soft pile of hay, some fresh water, and a bit of entertainment!
When two friends who are not exactly alike come down with colds, figuring out what will make each other feel better can be a surprising endeavor!
