If an Elephant Went to School

Synopsis:

Would an elephant learn the ABCs if she went to school? No way! She would learn to use her trunk as a nose, a straw, a hand and a hose!

Through a series of questions and answers, readers learn about animals and their unique behaviors. And in the end, you might find yourself asking just what you would learn.

This is another super sweet, quirky, silly but FUN installment from Ellen Fischer’s series of books. After her first “If an Armadillo went to a Restaurant," we were looking forward to another “If a __” book and this one DOES NOT disappoint!  Goodreads *****

"If the gorgeous illustrations don't make you want to pick this book up, the undeniably witty and smart words will. Early childhood students will thoroughly enjoy this story and I think it will be a favorite read-aloud." ***** Laticia Overton, NY early Childhood Education Examiner
