really liked it

Elephants Never Forget is the delightful story of an elephant who is separated from his herd during a storm. As he tries to find his place in the world, he learns about loyalty and finding true happiness.
The illustrations in this book are the biggest part of the fun as portions of the text are recruited as a part of the picture to invoke specific emotions. Words like "crack", describing thunder, are written in shapes implying their noise, making this book a fun one to read out loud. While the illustrations are simple, consisting of only three colors throughout the book, they are dynamic and playful. Through skillful use of color, our eyes follow the little elephant across the page and on to the next.
This book would be great to read with young children as you could make the sounds of the storm or the animals together, and in summer you could then go play with a water hose and pretend to be elephants and water buffalo.

Arianna I can tell that you enjoyed the book, and were very impressed with the visual aspect of the book. I think it's great how you suggest reading the book with children with lots of animation and even playing a game based on the book. Very thoughtful.
