Elephants, oh my!
Tracey Campbell Pearson
With over 35 books for children and countless awards from Parenting magazine,
Parents' Choice, Time magazine and starred reviews from top literary magazines and
more, there's no doubt that author-illustrator Tracey Campbell Pearson gets kids. She
understands what it takes to get a child to say, "Read it again, please." With both
carefully chosen words and chock-full-of-energy illustrations, Pearson tells her stories
with a pace and rhythm that has kids anxious to turn the page to see what's next - and
she throws in a bit of humor to keep them laughing along the way.
"ELEPHANT'S STORY "tells the story of a lovely friendship. When Gracie loses her favorite book,
Elephant finds it - but when he sneezes, the book's words go everywhere, mixing up the letters. How to get
the letters back into words and then back into the book? Children ages 3 - 7 will love following befuddled
Elephant as he works to right the book, enjoy finding letters throughout and reading the words of his friends, and clap when Gracie comes to the rescue as she gets the words back into the book.
