Elmer and the Whales by David McKee- OPTIONAL

McKee, David  Elmer and the Whales. PICTURE BOOK. Lerner Publishing Group, 2014. $16.95. Content: G.  

Elmer and his cousin Wilbur visited Grandpa Eldo.  “When I was your age,” said Grandpa Eldo, “at this time of year, I used to follow the river down to the coast and watch the whales go by.”  Elmer and Wilmer are fascinated and decide to give it a try.  Different animal friends help them and laugh at them as they journey down the river.  But exhaustion gets the best of them and Elmer and Wilbur end up falling asleep.  Where do they end up?  Will they get to see the whales like their grandfather did? And will they find their way back home? 

Read Elmer and Wilbur’s adventure in this fun picture book by David McKee. We loved the illustrations but thought the story was a little slow. 

Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL. Reviewer: SL.
