Little children and their grown-ups can poke their fingers through the holes to become the trunks of Big Elephant and Baby Elephant and tell a simple story. Baby Elephant learns to reach for leaves, suck up and squirt water, then takes a walk through the grassland before joining the rest of the family at the end of the day for a big elephant cuddle.

Felicity is an expert in making tricky topics friendly and accessible to young children and recently has been writing books that celebrate feelings, friendship, empathy, families, and diversity. When she's not writing or researching very specific details on dinosaurs, Felicity can be found tramping through fields and forests foraging for food or just curled up with a bag of Twiglets, a couple of cats and a crossword.
Usborne Editorial Director, Felicity Brooks, shares her editor's pick of the month:
‘Come on, Baby Elephant! There’s lots for us to do. S-T-R-E-T-C-H your trunk up very high and grab some leaves to chew.’. . . It’s not often children can really interact with a story, but in this delightful book, they can poke their fingers through the holes to become wiggly elephant trunks and help tell the tale. It’s the perfect book for sharing as Big Elephant teaches Baby Elephant about all the things trunks can do such as finding food, squirting water and sniffing flowers. And at the end of their busy day, the elephants join the rest of the family and twist their trunks together for a comforting elephant-style cuddle. The gentle rhyming text is fun to read out loud, and Elsa Martins’ charming, atmospheric illustrations will appeal to all little animal fans.
