Book 10. 10% of the way towards 100 books.And, pyschologically quite important, double figures, finally 🙂
Elmer is a library book. This is a shame in a way, as Smallest is extremely fond of him, and is probably not really going to want him to disappear off home. I feel that like previous favourite borrowed reads (Rattletrap car springs to mind) we’re going to need our own copy.
I like him too. He’s bright, cheerful and colourful, easy to read, and even has a page the baby can join in with. (All together now – BOOOO!) I’m sure there’s some deep underlying meaning to the patchwork elephant colouring himself grey to try to fit in better, but I can’t quite find it, and anyway, the rain washes him back to normal quite quickly.
If you’ve got a toddler, there’s a reason why Elmer is a classic. Find him and read him, you won’t be disappointed.
