Ellen Fischer: Release Party for If An Elephant Went to School
Saturday, August 15, 11:30am
Would an elephant learn the ABCs if she went to school? No way! She would learn to use her trunk as a nose, a straw, a hand, and a hose! Through a series of questions and answers, readers learn about animals and their unique behaviors. And in the end, you might find yourself asking just what would you learn.
