LoveReading View on Elmer: Hide and Seek!

There are all sorts of treats and surprises in this bright, lively interactive board book. Starring everyone’s favourite patchwork elephant Elmer, it’s a riot of colour and shapes, while on each page there’s a sturdy flap for little hands to lift, revealing one or more of Elmer’s friends. David McKee’s illustrations are irresistible and Elmer is one of the most recognisable as well as one of the friendliest characters in children’s books; this chunky board book will develop children’s appreciation of colour, shape and story as well as their motor skills.    ~ Andrea Reece
