Product description


Praise for If You Were an Elephant:

A Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year

* "Engaging and full of whimsical imagery . . . Readers learn about other animals of the savanna, herd behaviors, diet, mud baths, and more—along with a plethora of varied verbs and adjectives. The layout and artwork complement the text perfectly . . . Good as a read-aloud and for emergent readers, it concludes in a way that leads equally gracefully to the author’s notes or bedtime." —
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Delightful . . . Beautifully illustrated by Jones in a highly textured style that calls to mind the friendly, simplified shapes of Eric Carle's collages, all in an appropriately golden palette of natural tones . . . There's plenty little ones can grasp from this book's winsome lines and genial artwork." —

"Inviting . . . Exuberant . . . Readers will want to keep turning the pages of this engaging and informative picture book." —
