Free to Be Elephant Me

Written by Giles Andreae, Illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees

If you loved Giraffes Can’t Dance, you will love Free to Be Elephant Me. Num-Num, the baby elephant, wants to make a name for himself by doing something amazing. But in the end, he’s just simply an elephant without any amazing talents, or so he thinks. He goes on a journey and makes new friends that help him see all the amazing talents he has. And he makes a big decision to change his world and everyone else’s world, too.

Reading this book is a great way to help kids learn that comparing yourself to others isn’t a happy way to live. It’s a great read aloud that will enhance the social and emotional learning section in our library.
