I like this book because, the character Elmer the elephant things he is so different from the rest of the elephants due to his color. But little do he find out that the more different you are, the more unique you are as am individual.
A very cute book. The very colorful elephant explores his very colorful world. This would be fun to use in early childhood classes (or just at home)to show children just how colorful their world is.
A cute Spanish-English board book. The story line connects colors to Elmer's activities. Cute. I will send this home with students, encouraging literacy in both Spanish and English.
Elmer, the colorfully checkered elephant, points out nature's colors (with Somali language).
Cute, simple story about colors. Elmer the elephant is a patchwork elephant of colors.
