Synopsis

I teach in two schools.
One is in the city.
The other is in the jungle.
Some of my students have hands.
Others have trunks.
Elephants live in Asia. They eat three hundred pounds of food a day. They spray water out of their trunks. Even so, they are a lot like you. They like to eat cookies and hang out with their friends. They even like to paint pictures.
In this true story you'll learn about an amazing class of elephants that are taught to become artists by an amazing teacher.
