Product description


“Kevin Henkes has demonstrated a knack for getting it right...and he shows it again with “A Parade of Elephants,” a simple book done up in macaron shades of raspberry, blueberry, lemon, cassis and pistachio...It’s clear, clean and cheerful.” (Wall Street Journal)

“Henkes’ latest tale for preschoolers focuses on five elephants whose daylong march provides opportunities for counting and exploring opposites. ...A muted palette and uncluttered yet nuanced compositions distinguish yet another winsome title from Henkes. Toddlers and grown-ups—snuggle up and enjoy.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Caldecott winner and fan favorite Henkes is back with a delightful new picture book. ...Henkes’s images are just as integral as the spare text. Done in a light, pastel palette, the five whimsical and expressive elephants speak for themselves. ...A must-purchase.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Henkes again displays his understanding of preschooolers: hungry for new information and experiences but also needing a framework of solidity and comfort. ... Simply perfect.” (Horn Book (starred review))

“With little more than well-placed dots and lines, Henkes conveys the elephants’ emotions and sense of accomplishment as the day turns to night. Well-executed and appealing, this book is a useful addition to preschool collections.” (ALA Booklist)

“There’s a sense of energy on every page...With clear, bold type sized for puzzling out letters, this spare offering will appeal to preschoolers who, like the elephants, are settling down into starry sleep.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A book that cries out to be picked up and petted and hugged…The softly musical flow of the text belies the delicate exactitude of the wordsmithing…the art turns the slightly individualized elephant poses into endearing choreography as the lines of elephants weave through the pages…high classic potential as a baby bedtime tale!” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review))

“The versatile, ever-perceptive Henkes has created a beguiling book of pastel-colored pachyderms. . .The happy creatures demonstrate counting, a few apropos opposites like “over” and “under,” a dash of wonderous nighttime magic in the form of a shower of stars, and then—as always, parents will bless his name—the joy of settling down serenely to sleep after a full day.” (New York Times Book Review ) --This text refers to the board_book edition.
