This review is from: Elmer (Paperback)
Elmer the colourful elephant is made to feel ashamed for his differences, and covers his `true colours', as he is dazzling a patchwork of colours instead of being grey. In order to blend in, Elmer paints himself grey, but sooner after the other elephants literally see through his disguise as it washes off in front of them. Elmer is ridiculed, but it isn't long before they all see the errors of their ways and decide to celebrate his rainbow colours by decorating themselves in a similar fashion to Elmer.
For Reception, and Years ! and 2, the book raises points on key subjects such as cultural differences and acceptance of others values. It was used at [Primary School] as part of KS1 themed week, with art activities and hall displays. Through personally assisting with this themed week, I realised how many avenues books such as these can open up for a class.
