Have You Seen Elephant?

David Barrow‘s delightful picture book, Have You Seen Elephant?, is all about turning BARROW-David.-Have-You-Seen-Elephant-246x300.jpgpreconceived ideas upside down. One might think huge elephants would have a difficult time hiding, but everywhere Elephant hides, the boy can’t find him (the reader sees him, though). When, by the end of the book, Elephant has successfully hid in multiple spots, it’s not so hard to believe the turtle who says she is very good at playing tag.

Discuss opposites and elephant books with kids after reading.
