Elephant Appreciation Day
Coming up September 22 is the annual Elephant Appreciation Day. Don’t be left out of the excitement. Here is a list of some of our favorite books about and/or starring elephants, so you can be sure to have them on hand for the occasion!
“Stand Back,” Said the Elephant, “I’m Going to Sneeze!” by Patricia Thomas – a hilarious tale suitable for any audience.
Dumbo (Little Golden Book) by RH Disney – The first one who stole me heart! A lovely story about the power of friendship and encouragement. We all have special talents. Sometimes it takes a friend to help us find it.
Saving Lily by Peg Kehret – Fighting for animal rights, 2 young students stand up against their class and the planned field trip to the circus. Makes a great read aloud!
The Cowboy and His Elephant: The Story of a Remarkable Friendship by Malcolm Macpherson – for your older readers, or assigned high school reading. A delightful and true story of a man and his elephant best friend.
