Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreS?These books feature a colorful patchwork elephant in their title subjects. Elmer's winsome personality shines through as he romps with a variety of wild animals from all over the world?polar bears and leopards, elephants and kangaroos?in this jungle fantasyland. Elmer's Friends, the most sophisticated of the four, leaves readers with the message that we can be different and still get along. The other texts are fairly generic, according to the concept depicted; most of the illustrations, done in bold, textured paints, are appealing and will encourage responses from toddlers. Solid choices for the board-book set.?Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate Board book edition.

Review

"A welcome addition to early years resources, for monolingual and bilingual teachers alike, as they provide opportunities for lots of discussion in and about a variety of languages."  —Books for Keeps

We picked up a copy of Elmer's Friends from the library as part of a stack of books to read to our two year old. She fell in love with it. So much so that we bought a copy. She loves the different animals, and is learning their names. She particularly likes the the lion.
Whenever she sees it, she ROARS out loud, and makes us roar too.
This is the best kind of children's book. One they ask to have read to them over and over.

This was the book I bought the first time I took my daughter to the zoo. This is where she really learned to wave "bye bye" and "hello" and practice her animal sounds. She enjoyed roaring like a lion and hooting like the owl. But I enjoyed the message the most: "Elmer's friends are all different, but they all love Elmer." A subtle message, but an important one to learn.

Elmer's Friends was the first book my daughter (1.5 years) took an interactive interest in. She loves the lion. She roars whenever she sees it and it is the first animal sound she has made.

This is a great book ... its vivid colours and abundance of animals makes it very appealing for a young child. My daughter is not even a year old and she loves it! The other bonus is that my husband can read it to her in Chinese.

My son is a huge fan of "Hide and Seek Elmer". I bought "Elmer's Friends" thinking he would love this as well. There is a lion in this book that has the most frightening face. My son would start to cry the page before in anticipation of the upcoming lion. I tore that page out of the book and now my child can enjoy this book again. The other animals are fun, but the lion is terrifying!
