Elephant and his (smaller) friends are playing together, but Elephant is struggling to keep up with the others. First, the friends try hide-and-seek. Elephant is too big, so he can’t hide easily. “Oh, no,” says Elephant, because he knows he’ll struggle. Next, they play leap frog, but Elephant is too heavy to enjoy that game. “Oh, no,” he repeats, but has a go anyway. Jump-rope is also a problem for Elephant, who is trying his very best to take part in all of the activities his friends suggest. But poor Elephant is just too large for the games the others have chosen. And hopscotch isn’t any better. Neither is tag. His friends are getting frustrated with Elephant. Finally, Elephant gets a chance to suggest his ideal game – a tug-of-war! Elephant is the best at this one, and beats all the others put together. Unlike the previous games, Elephant has found one he is good at, and it is his turn to celebrate a win, which is only fair. The friends all celebrate each other’s success on a podium at the end.
