Where's Baby Elephant? by Ali Khodai, reviewed by Pippa Goodhart


This is one of those books of simple brilliance that makes you think, why didn't I think of that?! With the flap-opening and animal appeal of classic Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell, Where's Baby Elephant poses its one question, and lets the child unfold again and again until Baby Elephant is found.

Each big spread made of card shows some animals ... then opens to almost magically transform into other animals ... then opens again to perform the same pleasing trick. See how it works -

This is another wonderful, and different, book from Tiny Owl publishers.  Do click through to visit their website full of interest and teaching ideas. And, if you are able to contribute, Tiny Owl are crowdfunding for their survival, having not been given the government grant they applied for.

Looks a totally charming book and I love the colours and drawn(not "feely") texture of the animal's coats in the illustrations.
