Just launched is an Elmer's Special Day App! - click on the button on the right to find out more.
This book is a wonderful celebration not just of the fun that can be had when everyone “all joins in” but also of Elmer’s 20th birthday. It’s Elmer Day. In their excitement about getting ready for it, the elephants forget about the racket they are making and so annoy all the other animals in the jungle.
Luckily Elmer has a plan and soon all the animals in the jungle are celebrating Elmer Day in a feast of multi-coloured styles. Here at Lovereading4kids we’ve chosen just a small selection of Elmer titles to help celebrate Elmer’s 20th birthday, all of which toddlers will love for every book has a wonderful story and also every book is a great way to learn the colours of the rainbow and many more too!!!

Elmer's Special Day by David Mckee
It's almost Elmer Day again for the elephants, and they have begun their preparations already. But in all the excitement they are making an awful lot of noise, and upsetting the other animals. So Elmer changes the rules, and invites every single animal to join in the parade. And they have a surprise in store for Elmer.
