Review: I Dream of An Elephant by Ami Rubinger


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
I Dream of an Elephant takes readers through a wondrous world where they will encounter elephants of many colorful shades that sing, dance, and play - each in its own way! These illustrations provide the hints needed for children to chime in and complete the missing word (the color) from each rhyming couplet. I Dream of an Elephant teaches children about colors with an interactive, fill-in-the-blank challenge that encourages participation.
MY TAKE:

Children's books that are part activity books are such a good idea.

In I Dream of an Elephant, the narrator is saying how he or she dreams of different colored elephants. What's great about this book is that the colors are left blank and the child fills in the missing word based on the color of the elephants in the image and what completes the rhyme.

It's a fun way for kids to learn about colors and rhymes.

Thanks to NetGalley and Abbeville Kids for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. It's funny.
  2. It's a creative way for kids to learn something new.
  3. The illustrations are cute.

THE BAD:
  1. There's really only so much you can do with colors.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
The animals all love
a rockin' routine!

READ IT IF:
