It’s art time at Bluephant’s preschool. Mrs. Mooton asks the animal children to paint nature, and they get right to work. Aretta the rhinoceros girl draws raspberries. Kurt the camel boy paints a spiky hedgehog. Betty the bunny girl chooses a blue fish. Bluephant is deep into thought. “May I draw you?” he asks Mrs. Mooton. “Of course,” the teacher says. “All of us are a part of nature, even you!” When the children finish their paintings, the teacher hangs them up to be admired by all – even the kids’ moms and dads when they come to pick them up.
