My Bibi Always Remembers
Little Tembo is the smallest elephant in the family. Her family is in search of water as there has been a drought in the place where they all live. But Tembo is not worried. Her grandmother, Bibi, will lead them, and when she calls, they will follow, one by one, searching for the place where they will find water. But Tembo remembers a game she has played and lags behind to play again. When she looks up, she is alone, but soon Mama comes back to find her. After a while, Tembo is distracted again, and Auntie needs to come back for her. Again, Tembo loses her way. Will the family come to her rescue again? Will they find water in the drought?
