About this deal

Explore our beautiful Elmer gifts, as everyone's favourite elephant explore the jungle around him with his friends.

Though he might temporarily want to be just like all the other grey elephants, Elmer realises that being his own colourful self is far more enjoyable – and everyone loves him, just the way he is. A wonderfully upbeat and powerful tale that celebrates the uniqueness of the individual - and provides one of literature's best-loved characters too.Llegado ese día todos los elefantes se pintan de colores y salen a festejar siendo Elmer el único de color elefante. You can view our full range of colourful accessories with which to spread Elmer-ness far and wide, here. Elmer remains one of the most iconic and widely read children’s book series of all time, selling over 10 million copies worldwide since it was first published by Andersen Press in 1989. Yet, one day, Elmer starts to feel like the odd one out and so leaves the elephants to go off on his own.

Se pinta todo el cuerpo con una fruta que finalmente lo termina dejando color elefante y así camuflado se mete entre sus amigos sin que nadie lo reconozca y cuando nadie se lo espera. essere piccoli non significa non saper ragionare e distinguere le emozioni e le circostanze degli avvenimenti della vita. He soon realises that trying to be like the rest of the elephants was a mistake as everyone is upset, they want the old Elmer back, including Elmer. You can guess the gist of what's coming, of course - but this isn't your usual, ruggedly individualistic 'Be yourself and screw everyone else! Overall a fantastic book with multiple uses to link with the curriculum in key stage one, while also offering an important life message; Its ok to be different.The positive message about celebrating differences is done in a way that’s not at all heavy handed and I think it’s effective. The point is that the other elephants become sad - they don't recognise Elmer and the atmosphere of the whole herd changes at not having Elmer there.

Nevertheless, when the Andersen Press reprinted a shortened version of the original Elmer story in 1989, the gentle message of inclusion and acceptance was part of the book's immediate success, which spawned a series of subsequent books and wide range of popular merchandise about the patchwork Elephant. Often when people do manage to accept themselves, for who they are – they suddenly discover that other people are ready and willing to accept them for that too. In fact, I was surprised at how much he felt for him, right at the first pages he identified that he was sad about being different, and he completely anticipated what his intentions were as he wandered away from the other elephants.

Although David McKee never lost popularity, (Elmer’s creator was better known throughout the seventies for his Mr. This gorgeous sitting-style plush of the colourful little elephant, with his distinctive long trunk and large ears will brighten up any nursery. Following their happy reunion, the elephants reassure Elmer that they love him because of his differences, and not in spite of them, and they celebrate by painting themselves in multicoloured paint (and Elmer paints himself grey), in recognition of Elmer's unique appearance and personality. Letto insieme alla mia bimba di 6 anni, metto 3 stelle ( già tante perchè volute dalla mia piccina) disegni molto carini, ma storia senza senso e senza rispetto per i bambini, magari offrire loro storie con un pochino piu di spessore non guasterebbe. This book is suitable for children from a very early age, however would be suitable for children in an educational setting from the age of 3 years due to the colourful illustrations.
