The Elephant Who Was Scared by Rachel Elliot


The Elephant Who Was Scared by Rachel Elliot

Illustrated stories cover four important feelings (happiness, sadness, fear, and anger) with a gentle and sweet approach. A happy hippo, an angry tiger, a sad zebra, and a scared elephant allow young children to understand and learn to cope with these emotions.

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