Elmer the elephant is bright-colored patchwork all over. No wonder the other elephants laugh at him! If he were ordinary elephant color, the others might stop laughing. That would make Elmer feel better, wouldn't it? The surprising conclusion of David McKee's comical fable is a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter. Elmer the elephant, a colorful character because of his patchwork hide and sense of humor, tries to blend in with the herd, but soon realizes that he's happiest just being himself. "McKee's gentle humor and love of irony are in full force in this celebration of individuality and laughter." -- Publisher's Weekly.

A cute little book about how sometimes the things we don‘t like about ourselves, the things that make us different, are worth celebrating. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #a2z #bbrc @LibrarianRyan

royallyregan93 I have a t-shirt themed after this book. It has 3 regular elephants and one of Elmer all lined up and then it says “It‘s okay to be a little different.” (edited) 6mo

This book was published in 1968. This book's theme involved self-esteem and reflection. It encouraged the reader to be comfortable in their own skin. The illustrations allowed vibrant colors and animals which provide relationships to children.
