I've Got an Elephant
by Anne Ginkel; illus by Janie Bynum
32 pages; ages 4 - 6
Peachtree (paperback 2013)
This is a fun, rhyming counting book gull of elephants in PJ's, elephants in tutus, elephants who swim and fish and... pretty much do whatever it is a kid can imagine.
IT starts with an elephant who sleeps in bed.
"But when I go to school, he gets lonely and then...
he goes out and brings home an elephant friend."
Now the kid has two elephants who help with homework, but when she goes shopping with mom, the elephants get lonely and... they go out and bring home an elephant friend.
Then there are four, five, six... elephants accumulate and you've got to wonder just how many elephants can one kid have?
