Bluephant is his mommy and daddy’s darling little son. When Mommy is fixing people’s teeth and Daddy is playing violin in the orchestra, Bluephant has to go to kindergarten. At first, the little pachyderm doesn’t like it there one bit, but once he meets the rhinoceros-girl Aretta, the camel-boy Kurt, and the bunny-girl Betty, he realizes that kindergarten can be pretty nice after all. Time flies while they play, draw, eat, and nap together – and especially whenever they go to the park, run around outside, or attend a friend’s birthday party. Every evening, Bluephant still gets to spend time with his mommy and daddy. Their trips to the grocery store and bedtime stories happen just like they always did, and kindergarten won’t change that!
