The Four Friends - A Folk Story from Bhutan - Friendship and Cooperation.

Rainbow Educational design  and manufacture.

A Folk Story from Bhutan teaching cooperation between unlike species. The elephant, the Monkey, the Rabbit and the Peacock became friends after cooperating to grow their favourite fruit tree.

A friend in need, is a friend indeed.

The peacock found a seed and planted it, the rabbit watered the seed, the monkey fertilized the seed and the elephant guarded the seed. The seed grew into a plant, then into a tree. The tree grew into a very big pear tree. When the fruit was ripe it was so high they could not reach the fruit. The animal friends made a tower according to size and strength and plucked the fruit from the  branches.

By cooperating and uniting the friends were able to gather food that was otherwise beyond their reach.
