Elmer has many friends, all different-owl, mouse, polar bear and zebra. Delightful board book featuring the popular character, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, in dual language.
From The Critics:
School Library Journal
These books feature a colorful patchwork elephant in their title subjects. Elmer's winsome personality shines through as he romps with a variety of wild animals from all over the world -polar bears and leopards, elephants and kangaroos - in this jungle fantasyland. Elmer's Friends, the most sophisticated of the four, leaves readers with the message that we can be different and still get along. The other texts are fairly generic, according to the concept depicted; most of the illustrations, done in bold, textured paints, are appealing and will encourage responses from toddlers. Solid choices for the board-book set.
