I'm a little late (story of my life) but I'm trotting along to Talli Roland's party to celebrate with her the launch of Watching Willow Watts. Party-goers were invited to choose a character we would like to be and after much thought, I decided . . .
. . . If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be Elmer the Elephant, who is kind and helpful and nice to know. He is different to the other elephants because he is patchwork.
Through the books the author, David McKee, gently shows his young audience the uniqueness of individuals and ways to overcome difficulties. It is acceptable to be funny but not to be unkind. It’s fun to share.
Elmer teaches – and learns - little lessons that are so important.
