Elmer is an elephant. Elephant starts with the letter E. That fits into our theme for the week.
Elmer is a great book for kids. Everyone is different and that's the story of Elmer. He is not happy with how he looks. No one looks like him. Why does he look like the way he does.
This is a great book to discuss with your child how everyone is different and really it's ok. Being unique is what makes the world so interesting. Being different is an open invitation to possibly learn something new.
Our craft for this book was a milk jug, glue and tissue paper. I cut the tissue papers, and milk jug. Then you glue the tissue papers to the milk jug in whatever pattern you like.
