Board book: I Love You, Elephant
First sentence: I love you, Elephant! I love your long trunk! I wish I had a trunk like yours.
Premise/plot: Monkey loves, loves, loves his friends. This board book—featuring changing faces—celebrates friendship and affection.
My thoughts: I have enjoyed many books in the changing faces series. I think my two favorites are Meet Happy Bear and Don’t Wake the Tiger. I wouldn’t list this one as being among my favorite and best. I would still recommend it because even though the story isn’t quite as magical, the novelty of the changing faces is still delightful.
