What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

With the turn of each page, young readers share the love Monkey feels for his friends! “I love you!” is the refrain on each spread of this joyful story. Readers will delight in seeing new faces appear and then change when the page is turned, thanks to the magical Venetian blind element built into the book. This sweet novelty board book is great fun to read aloud, and the perfect addition to our Changing Faces series.

What Kind of Book is I Love You, Elephant! (a Changing Faces Book)

What Questions Should I Ask My Child

  • When you turn each page, you get to see how monkey’s kind words affect how each animal feels—they all smile! What kind things could you say to your family members or friends? How does it make you feel when people compliment you?

  • Monkey sees attributes in the other animals that he wishes he had, too (like Zebra’s stripes!). While it’s great to see the good in others, it’s also important to see the good in yourself and be happy with who you are. What qualities do you have that you’re proud of?
