The book's first story is The Plucky Orangutan, about Oma who tries her best when her friends set her nest-building challenges. She gets very frustrated that the rain destroys her attempts and shouts for the rain to go away and never come back. But her friend teaches her why the rain is so very important to them and the forest.

The book's second story is The Storyteller Sloth, about Salvidor who starts to tell a tale that is so compelling that animal after animal joins the branch to listen – until it snaps and they all go crashing to the ground. Salvidor kindly helps them all to climb out of the mud and up the tree again, before finishing his story. 

The last story in Rainy Day Tales is The Fussy Gorilla, about Gabi who wants to eat only ants as they are just so delicious. One day, when she comes across an ant nest and gobbles them all up, the leader of the gorilla troop is cross. He shows her all of the other foods a gorilla must eat – berries and flowers to help spread the seeds, leaves and shoots so their home doesn't become overgrown. Gabi soon comes to realise that gorillas play an important part in the forest and she must do her bit – and only eat ants occasionally!
