The Lovereading4Kids comment
2013 celebrates 80 years of Babar Tales published into English.
Meet Babar, a loveable elephant who leaves the jungle for adventures in the big city and makes it all the way to becoming King of the Elephants. The lovely pictures and characters all help to convey the story about how working hard bring you bigger and better rewards.
A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie the Pooh, always adored the Babar stories:
‘If you who are grown-up have never been fascinated by a picture book before then this is the one which will fascinate you. I salute Monsieur Brunhoff. I am at his feet.’
The Story of Babar by Jean De Brunhoff
This charming French illustrated classics follows an adventure of Babar the elephant.
If you love elephants, you will love Babar and Celeste, writes A. A. Milne in his preface to The Story of Babar . And if you have never loved elephants, you will love them now.
