Tweak Tweak by Eve Bunting

Mama and baby elephant are out for a walk. As baby elephant holds on to mama's tail, baby has lots of questions about the other animals around them.

"What is that?"
"That is a frog."
"What is he doing?"
"He's jumping."
"Can I jump?"
"No, because you are a not a frog..."

The walk continues in this manner with baby asking mama questions about the monkey in the acacia tree, the crocodile in the river, butterfly flying high in the sky, and the songbird singing in the fig tree. When it is time to head home, baby elephant is ready to lead the way.
