LoveReading View on Elmer's Friends

Elmer introduces his friends and more in this bright, user-friendly board book.  He’s the brightest, giraffe is the tallest, snake is the longest – it’s a great way to learn important first concepts and to develop children’s vocabulary and understanding of the world too.  Elmer is the perfect pre-school character – warm, friendly, reassuring and this is a lovely book to share with the very young.  Chunky tabs make turning the pages especially easy for little fingers.  ~ Andrea Reece
