Elmer and the race
Part of the Elmer Picture Books series
The young elephants want to prove who is the fastest, so Elmer and Wilbur organise a race.
Each decorated a different colour, the racers set off around the course and discover things about themselves - Blue may be first and Orange second, but White is kind, Pink and Violet are funny and Yellow is a cheat.
Luckily Yellow also learns he is very good at saying sorry, so each young elephant gets a medal from Elmer.
