Grandma likes to take in various animals and give them a good home but she swears on her life that she'll never take in any elephants. She denies the elephant several times and her house starts to get a little crowded with all of the other animals but she holds her ground. Will she even let the poor elephant inside and give him a good home?

This book is one that kids will enjoy for quite awhile and will help with reading skills. It also has a good message about thinking about your own prejudices, which Grandma has to face eventually.
