Jasmine the Jaguar lives in a zoo. It’s a really big place with lots of things you can do.
Jasmine is happy because she sings and is on her way to a show. But other animals who have jobs of their own are not happy, and are feeling quite low.
Tim the Teaching Turtle wears a frown. “What’s wrong Tim?” Jasmine asks, looking down. “Oh Jasmine,” he says, “I explain to my students as many times as I can, but they still don’t understand!
Jasmine wonders what she can do. She did not want Tim to feel so blue! “Maybe there is another way. Try drawing it out so they know what to say!”
Genny The Guiding Giraffe hangs her head. “What’s wrong Genny?” Jasmine asks, stopping in her tread. “Oh Jasmine,” She says, “When I give my tour of the zoo, no one asks questions so I’m in a bad mood.”
Jasmine thinks long and hard about this one. Being in a bad mood is not very fun! “Don’t let those people get you down. Leave them with some happiness, and not more of a frown.”
Genny and Tim follow Jasmine’s advice and go with her to hear her song. It turns out, solving the problems did not take very long!
Jasmine reaches her show and sings to all of the zoo: “Sometimes people feel sad when they do what they do, but when you talk with care like me, you can make people happy too!”
