This is a great addition to the nursery bookshelf. Touching on bullying in a very positive way, this wonderful story shows the colourful elephant, Elmer at her very best, cajoling and persuading all the birds of the forest to stand up against being bullied and needless to say Elmer succeeds in a very clever way, so that no one ends up upset.
Elmer and the Big Bird by David McKee
One day, Elmer notices that there are no birds around. How strange! Soon he finds them hiding from the nasty bully bird in a nearby cave. The bully bird is mean and likes to frighten the little birds. Led by Elmer, the animals work together to frighten off the bully - and succeed!
