Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Elmer the checkered elephant is familiar to many young readers. In this board book, his job is to introduce readers to opposites. He is pictured chatting with a bird that is resting on his trunk to demonstrate the difference between big and small. Tiger and tortoise feature fast and slow. A rather strange looking adult lion is shown watching over a trio of sleeping cubs and thus the opposites—awake and asleep. Giraffe is leading a porcupine and it is easy to see the difference between tall and short. Other comparisons include hot/cold, happy/sad, whispers/shouts, and fat/thin. The closing depiction of a black and white checked elephant seems to leave the pattern and is not really crystal clear in its message. Fans of Elmer may find this book appealing.

This book offers beautiful artwork to attract babies attention. The pages have short easy sentences that are great for the short attention spans of toddlers.
