an elephant auntie page

One day, when the herd stops to rest, the little
elephant falls asleep in the shade of a tree. When the
other elephants are ready to move on, the baby is still
sleeping. Slowly the herd begins to wander down the
trail. The baby's auntie is worried. What if her little
charge gets left behind? She goes quickly to
the napping baby and touches it. She has to shake it to
wake it up. Together they run down the trail to join
their herd.
