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.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
