PreS-Gr 1‘Elmer, the colorful patchwork elephant, reveals a sense of humor as he shows a herd of gray elephants that cold and warm are relative terms. When the others complain that they feel cold on a cooler than usual day in the jungle, Elmer leads them on a journey up to snow-covered mountains where they cavort in the snow and ice. Home again, they are now better able to appreciate their warm jungle home. This gentle story is sure to please children. The illustrations use a few subtle line changes in facial expression and body language to show a range of emotion and mood. A delightful picture book.‘Eunice Weech, M.L.
