The Lovereading4Kids comment
Who better than Elmer the elephant and his creator David McKee to introduce children to wild animals? This sturdy little board book features a parade of Elmer’s friends in vivid, lively character sketches by McKee. There’s a giraffe, crocodile, monkey and quizzical looking lion, while on the last page is a smiling Elmer, in all his patchwork glory. Clearly labelled, the animals will hold the attention of even the very youngest and David McKee’s artwork dazzles even in this small format. A handy clip and strap means this can be attached to a buggy. ~ Andrea Reece
