A charming story of gentle compassion as a family outing takes a surprising turn! First the family finds a lost frog and decides to take him home. Before the day is over, they find a kitten, a canary, a hungry mouse, and a puppy. There is always room for one more—until they are almost home and find a lost elephant! Lift-the-flaps add fun to this youngest child memory game and story.
