If an Elephant went to Schoolby Ellen Fischer (Author), Laura Wood (Illustrator)
Unique animal behaviors!
Have you ever wondered.. If an ELEPHANT went to school, what would she learn?
Would she learn to read and write like you do? NO! He would probably learn to use her trunk in different ways!
What if an OWL wen to school? What would he learn in class? Counting from one to hundred?
This is another super sweet, quirky, silly but FUN installment from Ellen Fischer’s series of books. After her first “If an Armadillo went to a Restaurant” , we were looking forward to another “If a __” book and this one DOES NOT disappoint!
Laura Woods lovely illustrations of the various young animals learning survival skills that are so different than ours. We love that “If an Elephant went to School” is similarly illustrated and feels like a true companion book to her earlier “If an Armadillo went to a Restaurant”.
If an Elephant went to School is best suited for beginning readers and can be used in lessons for Cause and Effect. It also makes for a perfect read aloud for younger audiences. Each page follows a pattern where the author asks the reader what if an animal went to school, what would he/she learn? You will find animals such as the zebra, a frog, a honey bee and even a SKUNK!
With gentle pacing and simple language, little readers will be thrilled to learn how different animals require different skills for survival.
A great companion picture book non-fiction for libraries, classrooms and home reading.
