The Lovereading4Kids comment

This bright, attractive book, part of an innovative non-fiction series, imagines elephants in everyday situations to convey information about the animals in a clever and highly memorable way. For example, what would happen if an elephant went to school? Well, the library would be the best place for it as elephants need to raise their trunks and trumpet loudly to communicate. Children will learn a great deal from the book, not least the importance of asking ‘What if …’. ~ Andrea Reece

Would an Elephant Enjoy the Seaside? provides a hilarious and informative introduction into the life of an elephant. By imagining animals in everyday scenarios readers can learn about their size, diet and other features. If an African elephant went to school for a day, what might she get up to? They wouldn't be best suited to the library, when they want to talk elephants raise their trunks and trumpet very loudly! Engaging question and answer format will keep young readers entertained and help them to understand and retain animal facts.

Reviews

What if an elephant wanted to go upstairs? What would an elephant like for breakfast? Could an elephant join an art class? With questions to encourage creativity and critical thinking through imaginative and playful storytelling, this book cannot help but be a hit. There are also plenty of interesting facts shared along the way, such as, 'in the wild, elephants roll in the mud, which protects their skin from the hot sun', and the fact that they flap their big ears to cool themselves down Early Years
