Picture Book Month Day 2: Elephants

Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative 
that celebrates the print picture book during the month of November. 
Visit the Picture Book Month website  
Picture Book Month Day 2 theme: Elephants

My pick for day two is a book our art teacher introduced to me. Elmer the Elephant. 

Elmer the elephant is quite a different type of elephant. Instead of a gray hide, his skin is a patchwork of colorful colors. He is also an upbeat, friendly, lively sort of fellow but lately he is suspecting that his elephant family might be laughing at him. Elmer devises a plan to hide his colorful exterior by covering himself in elephant berries which makes him look just like the other elephants. Elmer soon finds out that our outward appearance cannot hide our inner selves and he rejoices in becoming himself again. This is a wonderful teaching book and is ripe for connection activities.
