Honestly, it's hard to go wrong with a Little Golden Book and this one is no different. It's a story about a little elephant who likes to dance but when he does so, he's disturbing a mouthy parrot, who in turn, tells him his skin doesn't fit him. The baby elephant tries to make his skin fit, gets a tiger to volunteer to chew some of it off, then meets up with a crocodile who volunteers to eat his ears, then meets a lion that would just like to eat him in general (there was no python in my book!). But, the baby elephant is saved by a herd of elephants and they all take up dancing. The parrot stopped laughing at the baby elephant then. It's a very cute story and if you have elephant lovers in your house, it's particularly sweet. The pictures are just darling, especially the one where the baby elephant is crying. They're just very well done. A great book and a great find - it's read daily in our house.
