When five fruit-loving elephants spot a scrumptious hard-to-reach fruit high up in a tree, it's a race to see who can claim it first! But after one too many fumbles, the elephants begin to lose their cool, and the highly coveted fruit is whisked away by the teeny-tiniest of all jungle creatures—mice! The elephants soon realize they have a lot to learn from this cooperative little bunch.

That Fruit Is Mine! based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Deep in the jungle live five elephants, each of the elephants loves a different fruit, that is until they come across a very tall tree with exotic looking fruit dangling from its branches. Then, each of the elephants decides that they want the fruit and so they all cry out ‘MINE’ and try different ways of getting the fruit to drop from the tree. What they hadn’t noticed were five little mice working together to get the fruit. The elephants are astonished that the mice worked together and soon they learn that it’s better to work together than alone as together they just might be able to get to the fruit. This is a very sweet children’s book that emphasises the message of working together and being part of a team rather than trying to do something alone when others are trying to get to the same goal. The elephants each come up with clever ideas to get the fruit to drop but they just won’t work when they do it alone. The mice are very clever and know how to work together. The book has been beautifully illustrated and the pictures really do capture the hilarity of the story and the expressions perfectly. They will certainly give children a laugh. This is a book about teaching cooperation and problem-solving and would be a wonderful book to read in school and maybe do a class project about working together, as well as a bedtime story too.
