June 2017 Book of the Month Two little elephants are busy getting ready for a very special day! And they make a lot of noise about it. Getting ready to go out their anoraks go rustle, zip, pop and once on the road the cars go ding! ding!, honk! honk!, while in the shops the trolley rattles clink, clunk, clonk. Once home, there is lots to prepare before a final wonderful silence. And then a great surprise. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Join Ellie and Lump - two toddler elephants - on their very busy (very noisy) day! In this big-hearted and bouncy read-aloud story about a special day in the life of two adorable elephants, Ellie and Lump are bubbling with energy from the moment they wake up - they're just ready to explode! There's a lot to do: boing-boing-bouncing on beds, split-splatting eggs for breakfast, whizz-whooshing around on supermarket trollies and blowing up balloons. They're planning a big birthday surprise ...but who is it for?
Illustrator Becky Palmer captures the joy and excitement of a day out with mum and the thrills of planning a party, while the read-aloud text with wonderfully rhythmical sound effects makes this a fizzy first reading experience perfect for sharing with toddlers.
