Description

Being small can be best of all!

"Here come the animals, one by one,
all getting ready for the Jungle Run.
Cub turns up to take her place,
but the others say, 'You're too small to race.'"

Cub may be little compared to the other animals, but she's quick and clever. And she knows just how to show the rest of the jungle what a winner she is!
