There’s a Horton-esque quality about Bernstein’s Elephant throughout, and both he and Monkey exude personality. This achievement in visual characterization is matched by Schaefer’s text, which employs controlled word choices and embeds careful repetition in support of the emerging reader. A welcome addition to the early-reader shelf.
Schaefer’s rich and witty dialogue will charm and amuse early chapter-book readers. The digitally created cartoonlike characters are brimming with emotion and often surrounded by distinctive patterns of sunshine, leaves, and grasses. Children comfortable with Arnold Lobel’s FROG AND TOAD ARE FRIENDS (HarperCollins, 1970) and Wong Herbert Yee’s UPSTAIRS MOUSE AND DOWNSTAIRS MOLE (Houghton, 2005) will enjoy reading about Monkey and Elephant.

From the mouth of my 7-year old...
It is about a Monkey and an Elephant in 3 chapters. The Monkey and Elephant are friends. They need to find shade. They sing and they protect each other.
Her thoughts: It was funny! It was easy for me to read. The pictures were great. Have you read it? Did you like it?
My thoughts: I enjoyed listening to her read this to me. She read right through it easily, and really liked that she had read a chapter book in one sitting! She was so proud of her reading skills! :) I also enjoyed the drawings which were done so simply in both the drawing and color! They're very appealing! I fun, quick read for my little reader.
