Whether helping old monkey climb a tree or keeping Giraffe's neck warm on a cold day, Elephant is always ready to lend a hand, or rather a trunk… an exceptionally long trunk!
An uplifting, fun story about individuality, self-acceptance and being yourself. Selected by The White Ravens.
El elefante tiene una trompa larguísima. Con ella ayuda a sus amigos, pero el hipopótamo siempre se burla de él:
–¡Eso no es normal!
Pero, ¿qué es “normal”?
Una divertida historia que ayuda a entender la diversidad. Libro seleccionado por The White Ravens.
"Elephant is blue, animals move on two legs and talk to one another, and Zebra has removable stripes—all of which underlines the text’s implied messages that normality is highly relative and it is not a good idea to ridicule those who are different.” -- Booklist
"A charming story for younger readers that makes clear in a clever way that there really isn’t such a thing as “normal,” this choice is lovely.” --Kendal Rautzhan, Books to Borrow, Books to Buy; nationally syndicated newspaper column.
Kids receive a fun story of normalcy and kindness. --Midwest Book Review
"THAT'S NOT NORMAL has a some terrific messages while also being a fun story. I especially enjoyed the whimsical illustrations. Isn't the elephant on the cover absolutely adorable?….focuses on self-confidence and diversity by showing that being different is a strength, not a weakness. However, I also love how it teaches children about kindness." -- Booking Mama
I enjoyed the book’s colorful illustrations, and I am sure a young reader would as well. This book shows that sometimes things seen as abnormal or strange can be helpful and not something to be judged and ridiculed. – Kids' Book Buzz
