Henry – And how he became the Happiest Elephant in the World
A children’s book for young and old, suitable for ages 3 and up
In distant Thailand lives the little elephant, Henry. But the river has dried up! Now, the entire elephant family has no water left for bathing and drinking. Henry might be the smallest, but he hatches a brave plan. All alone, he sets out to search for water for his family. Fortunately, he has animal friends who help him on the long journey. Thus, he ultimately becomes the happiest elephant in the world.
Henry’s story encourages taking new paths and not shying away from significant challenges even at a young age.
