You Can’t Take an Elephant on Holiday
32pp., pbk., RRP $A12.99
With winter closing in, holidays seem like a tempting option right now but whatever you do or wherever you go, DON’T take an elephant with you. Or a cheetah, or a rhino, or a meerkat or an albatross for that matter. Or any of the animals mentioned in this wacky book, because even though they just want to have fun, they are going to cause havoc.
This latest addition to the You Can’t Take an Elephant series is as hilarious as the others and will delight both child and adult alike as they share it together. Let the child think of then draw a scene from their favourite holiday spot and then add a favourite animal and a situation and there is the basis for a story. Even better if it rhymes as this text does! Or explore how the author has used language to make the rhymes and play with their words so they do too. Imagine what a wombat might do if you took it to the beach with you!
A bit of fun to play with as the long winter terms drags on…
