The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little fingers will love touching this book and laughing at all the things that show it is not an elephant! Ears that are too rough, a tail that is too tufty, toenails that are too bumpy. But what about the tusks? They are just right.

Synopsis

That's Not My Elephant by Fiona Watt

This is a lovely new edition of this popular title in the groundbreaking That's Not My... series.

It helps very young children develop important language and sensory skills. The series was awarded 'Best Buy' by the readers of Prima Baby magazine. It is an award-winning series shortlisted for the British Book Industry Stora Enso Award for Design and Production.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
