I've never been a fan of the circus and I probably won't any time soon. Dumbo was probably the first Disney animated film that was not based off a fairy tale or a book but was an original story by Disney. So what is the story?

A circus elephant named Mrs. Jumbo receives her baby who has abnormally large ears. So naturally he is made fun of and is frowned upon by the other elephants who shun him. But when a couple of kids come and look at the elephants a couple of boys tease Dumbo and the teasing

This book can be used to teach young students to be kind to everybody even if they don't look exactly like you or talk like you. it tells the classic story of dumbo and how he is made fun of for his large ears. I chose this book because many students probably heard of it but may have not read it, it also shows good lessons in it.

This is about a baby elephant who is in a circus with his mom. This elephant gets made fun of for his overly large ears. Dumbo and his knew friend Timothy the mouse make the best of his large ears and teach dumbo how to fly and now dumbo gets treated great and everyone likes him.
I love dumbo - not sure if my 2 year old understands it quite yet but I am hoping he loves it as much as me

Adam says, "I liked everything about this book-- the pictures and everything else. Its about Dumbo the flying elephant and the ringmaster turned him into a clown and people were laughing at him. Dumbo didn't stay a clown. He learned to fly and became the star of the circus."

Recommends it for: fans of the Disney movie
A picture book version of the Disney movie. Will be most enjoyable to children who have seen the movie as most scenes are so briefly summarized that it can be hard to follow at times.
a short retelling of the movie version of the story, with simple words and pictures from the disney movie..
Never liked this story.I dont know why.its just always made me mad!if doesnt make sense to me!
Who wouldn't like an elephant which flys with his huge ears :D.
