It’s Merry the Elephant’s first day at school! 🐘
When her teacher, Miss Moo, tells the children to paint, Merry excitedly gets to work on her picture. 🖌 Maybe it will be displayed on the special board reserved for the best ones.
But . . . oops! She accidentally spills blue paint all over Gee the Langur’s picture. 😰
Gee is angry. He rips Merry’s drawing in half.
Now, Merry is upset. But instead of bursting into tears or throwing a tantrum, she calmly reaches for another sheet of paper. Will this inspire Gee to follow suit?
Written by Karishma and illustrated by Pia, this charming tale provides opportunities for children to explore concepts such as feelings and self-management in a healthy manner.
