The Elephant and the Ant • TYA • World Tales

A Traditional Tale from India adapted by Genevieve Aichele

Wisdom from the smallest of all helps the jungle animals to maintain order when the largest of all acts only in a selfish manner; not deciding for the good of all as their leader should. This tale shows that there is wisdom in the most unexpected of places, and that shared wisdom in a community can mollify or moderate any disagreement.
