My Elephant

There’s only one who can take the blame for trampling the flower bed, eating all of the cupcakes and messing up the hallway: My Elephant.  Petr Horácek’s book cleverly integrates humourous subtext between grandchild and grandparents, and begs a discussion of the elephant in the room.  This one is a short, fun read aloud.

For older learners, discuss other idioms and create a story with an idiom as the central theme.
