They both liked to make sounds because the liked to hear their voices. But Monkey got defensive and asked Elephant to stop copying him. Elephant was not even aware he was copying Monkey he was just playing. Monkey sneezed and then Elephant sneezed Monkey thought he was copying him again. But then he realized Elephant was really sick. Monkey decided he would take care of Elephant. But how could he take care of Elephant if he did not know what made an him feel better or how would Elephant take care of Monkey when he got sick? They do things their own special way.
This is a story will make a child aware that it is okay to be different and is even okay to have friends that like to do things different. It is a way of learning new things or just enjoying others talents. It is nice to have a caring friend, too. The illustrations depicts the emotional feelings when the characters are playing and when they are sick by capturing their expressions. Monkey and Elephant are just too cute!
I highly recommend this book.
