Peanut the Elephant is about a baby elephant who loves to be with his friends. One day he's playing and gets lost; there is a big storm and he is by the water and it sweeps him away from his home.
Peanut the Elephant teaches us that kids can trust and meet new friends who can help them with anything. It is about helping each other out, even if you don't know who they are. It shows that any person can be scared if they get lost or see someone who needs help.
