This story is cute and the illustrations are appropriate and colorful. I did find some of the dialogue confusing and distracting for young readers as there is a lot of inventive spelling. The book is targeted for ages three to nine. Young children will enjoy the story but have difficulty understanding the text. I liked the message of setting goals and persevering in attempting to meet them. I do feel that the story is more appropriate for the higher end of its target audience, though younger children might like the interactive app that has recently become available.
It's a cute story for preschoolers, who'll enjoy the simple vocabulary in the text. The colorful illustrations of Elephant's attempts to become something else are especially good.
Illustrated colorful children's book about an elephant who is allergic to flowers but eats them as food when he notices a bee that is also eating the flowers and is not sneezing.
He wants to be like the bee and asks for help. The bee gives him advice and nothing seems to work to change him into a bee til a few weeks later when at the very last minute, magic happens...
