    Elmer the very young elephant is just that little bit different He lives with a herd of elephants They might be young or old, tall or short, fat or thin In fact there are many variations in how they look But they are all the same colour All except Elmer Elmer is quirky He is most decidedly not the same colour as the other elephants.Elmer is a beautiful kaleidoscope of all sorts of colours His body is a patchwork of yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, black and white His pers Elmer the very young elephant is just that little bit different He lives with a herd of elephants They might be young or old, tall or short, fat or thin In fact there are many variations in how they look But they are all the same colour All except Elmer Elmer is quirky He is most decidedly not the same colour as the other elephants.Elmer is a beautiful kaleidoscope of all sorts of colours His body is a patchwork of yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, black and white His personality is also larger than life and matches his appearance Elmer is cheerful, optimistic and sometimes very silly He absolutely loves practical jokesIf there was even a little smile, it was usually Elmer who started it But one night Elmer began to worry He couldn t sleep for thinkingAnd the think that he was thinking was that he was tired of being different Why did he look so different from all the others Was that why they were laughing at him So, sadly, he crept away, determined to somehow cover himself with grey, so that he would blend in with the others.So he disguised himself, with the help of some berries, and it seemed to work Nobody recognised him on his return, and even his friends greeted him politely, but rather distantly Why were they all so serious, quiet and moroseElmer felt that something was wrong thehe looked at the serious, silent, still standing elephants, thehe wanted to laugh Finally he could bear it no longer When he did what only Elmer could have done, all the elephants became helpless with laughter too They were overjoyed to have Elmer back in their midst again And then the weather changed so that magically Elmer s true colours were revealed Everyone in the herd was so happy to have their popular prankster back that they decided to celebrate with a special day every year, OnElmer s Day , every elephant would decorate themselves with unique and colourful patterns, and Elmer must decorate himself to look yes, you ve guessed it So every year, on the day of the parade,if you happen to see an elephant ordinary elephant colour, you will know it must be ElmerThe author of Elmer, David McKee, originally comes from South Devon, in England He has produced mainly children s books and animations, including several other series Sometimes David McKee uses the pseudonym Violet Easton He has illustrated books by other authors, such as some recentPaddington Bearbooks, and those by his wife, Violet McKee, and his son, Chuck McKee The first book that he sold was of a story he had told at college,Two Can Toucan , which is also still in print.Elmer is an absolutely delightful picture bookElmer the Patchwork Elephantby David McKee was originally published in 1968, and has been in print ever since The current edition uses illustrations by the author from 1985 In this edition, the name ELMER is printed on the cover in shiny gold, reflective print Elmer has now featured in 34 books by David McKee, and the series has sold nearly 5 million copies in 40 languages around the world It is as popular as ever Serendipitously, just as all the elephants in this story celebrateElmer Dayat the end of the story, this year the publishers declared 28th May 2016, to be Elmer Day Across Great Britain, libraries and bookshops have held Elmer themed events David McKee himself has produced Elmer board books, bath books, colouring books, an Elmer flap book, an Elmer hole in the page book and an Elmer pop up book The character of Elmer also stars in a children s television series.From the start of this first story, the message is clear Elmer is different, but he is accepted and valued just the way he is He is unique and has a special talent to make everyone happy When he alters his appearance and no longer looks like himself, he is ignored by his friends He experiences what it feels like to be treated like an outcast, and to be ostracised by his old friends In this book children may begin to think of the value of friendship and family, identity and diversity, as well as being true to oneself When Elmer s true colours are revealed, his friends are surprised and delighted They much prefer his multicoloured and fun loving persona, and reassure Elmer that they love him because of his differences, and not in spite of them.The three year old next door loved this book as much as I did He could quickly see the elephant shape on the cover, although at first glance to me it looked like an abstract pattern He was very keen to name all the colours he saw, and very keen too to spot and identify all the animals in the jungle scenes It proved to be a real page turner, with him squealing in delight at the bigBOOin the middle of the book, and his insistence on turning the page at the end himself, to see all the highly decorated elephants on the last two pages My little Turkish friend wanted to keep this one, to read over and over again, rather than to return it to the library.David McKee has a keen insight into what will appeal to little children, a lovely way with words, producing bold and attractive illustrations, and a story with a strong heart at its core It doesn t get any better than this

    Thanks to Wiebke, I ve discovered my first Elmer book I m very grateful This is a gift worthy book for new babies and for young children This is the first Elmer book, and there are many others Unfortunately, my library has only a very few of the books, perhaps because they re British books.I am so surprised I d never known of these books This book was first published in 1968 I d have thought I d have come across them before now.This story is charming and sweet, lighthearted, and very amusi Thanks to Wiebke, I ve discovered my first Elmer book I m very grateful This is a gift worthy book for new babies and for young children This is the first Elmer book, and there are many others Unfortunately, my library has only a very few of the books, perhaps because they re British books.I am so surprised I d never known of these books This book was first published in 1968 I d have thought I d have come across them before now.This story is charming and sweet, lighthearted, and very amusing This particular book is a great educational tool for children who are enjoying learning their colors.The positive message about celebrating differences is done in a way that s not at all heavy handed and I think it s effective It s also a wonderful friendship story The illustrations are very colorful and fun There is a lot to look at on every page I especially enjoyed some of the facial expressions the various animals exhibit So entertaining Children s adults will be just as entertained as they are, and in my opinion that s one thing that makes a great children s picture book I can see why this is a classic.One short quote from the author s biography on the inside back cover that I really appreciated Mr McKee enjoys doing books that leave things unsaid Lovely book 4 stars

    I am so glad that I had the chance to read this book I think every young child should be introduced to David McKee s Elmer The book encourages each of us, young and old, to embrace who we are We are encouraged to celebrate our differences In this short tale, McKee reminds us that by accepting our special gifts and talents, we can bring joy and happiness to those around us Elmer is well worth your time.

    This is a beautiful children s book, that will really brighten up your and if you have children, also their day It is hard to feel down when you have such a wonderfully brightly coloured, happy elephant to look at.Unfortunately, Elmer thinks that maybe the other elephants are laughing at him for being different instead of laughing with him for being funny and loveable.When he dons a normal elephant disguise, he finds his herd have lost their sense of joy Soon, he discovers that it is This is a beautiful children s book, that will really brighten up your and if you have children, also their day It is hard to feel down when you have such a wonderfully brightly coloured, happy elephant to look at.Unfortunately, Elmer thinks that maybe the other elephants are laughing at him for being different instead of laughing with him for being funny and loveable.When he dons a normal elephant disguise, he finds his herd have lost their sense of joy Soon, he discovers that it is his differences that make him and the other elephants happy No one should feel they have to conform to a group idea of what is normal , and have to fit in Often when people do manage to accept themselves, for who they are they suddenly discover that other people are ready and willing to accept them for that too As Elmer is accepted and, indeed feted for, his differences, so can children and grownups be an important part of a diverse and supportive community.The pictures at the end of the book, of the elephants celebrating Elmer Day are a wonderful riot of colour and pleasure Thanks to Whispering Stories for introducing me to this book

  9. Sophie Crane says:
