In this simple story Elsa Elephant behaves badly which leads to important lessons about being kind and helpful. There’s a big surprise in store for the whole class – except for Elsa Elephant who has behaved badly and not thought of others feelings. Miss Beanie does not choose her but instead gives the surprise to Gino Giraffe and Zelda Zebra to look after. A chance encounter finally allows Elsa to prove to Miss Beanie that she too can be kind and helpful and she learns just how nice it can be to be trusted to follow the Golden Rule.
