There was excitement in the air as all the young elephants clustered together in anticipation of Papa Red's visit. No one could get anything done and so the older elephants asked Elmer to entertain them for a while so they could "prepare the presents in peace." There would be no peace and quiet with so many little elephants underfoot. Elmer decided that it would be the perfect time to go get the tree. The young wide-eyed elephants scampered behind him as their parents smiled as they sensed the excitement in the air. Even the little blue birds and the monkeys high above in the trees knew that it was a special time of the year. Soon Elmer, the patchwork elephant, and his little band of elephants could be seen walking uphill in search of a tree.

It wasn't long before the sights and sounds of the jungle turned into the quiet cold of the mountains. Snow covered pine trees awaited the little elephants who had never seen snow. They were so excited that "Papa Red was forgotten" as they cavorted in the snow. They turned this way and that and that way and this in the snow and even made snowballs and tried to build a snow elephant. Elmer got down to business and went to select a tree from a moose who said, "Let the young elephants see Papa Red tomorrow, but keep them hidden. We'll have a busy night ahead." Soon Elmer and the little elephants were seen carrying their tree down the mountain. There were so many preparations to be made for the special day, but would they actually be able to see Papa Red? Would he really come with a sleigh pulled with six moose with bells around their necks?

This is a delightfully charming story of Elmer, the patchwork elephant, and his "special" treat for the little ones.

I love the Elmer series! It is new to me but I am crazy about Elmer! I am a an kindergarten teacher and I love that Elmer is different and that he is a star among the elephants. I love that the baby elephants make presents for other elephants who need them and then they get a gift too. This will bring a great classroom discussion in December.

I really enjoyed the original Elmer book about an elephant who learns to appreciate his unique qualities. I took a chance on this book but found the story really boring and uninspiring. Don't waste your money!
