The story is by David McKee and is a tale based on a patchwork coloured Elephant who helps in the search for baby elephants lost teddy bear.
The story is really well read by a very happy sounding lady.
The story is sweet and my daughter had it read three times in a row.
This book is fun for kids and a nice read for adults.
On the upside:
- Interactive with the book adds to the “re-readability” of the book.
- Universal for iPad and iPhone
- Nicely drawn and animated
On the downside:
- No page selector to jump into the story to your favorite bit of the book.
Overall, the book is a great little book and my four year old daughter really liked it. This is the second Elmer book we have read and it is the best one so far. If you are looking for a nice bed time story then you should certainly look at this one.
