It is the ideal book to teach the little ones the importance of self-acceptance. In a world of elephants, they are all big, fat, with big ears, a big trunk for a nose and gray skin, but each one has its own characteristics, taller, with more hair in the ears, with bigger eyes. big ones or the longest tail.

Elmer is so famous that he even has his own day. May 27 is Elmer’s Daythat is, the day of friendship, camaraderie, self-esteem, diversity…

But Elmes is completely different. In reality, he is also big, fat, with big ears, a big trunk for a nose, but his color is not gray. His skin is a different color, well, many colors: green, yellow, red, black, white, pink, blue, all the colors you can imagine. Among so many gray elephants, Elmer can be seen from afar, he stands out in the herd.

One night Elmer cannot sleep, he is not very happy with his color, he would like to be a gray elephant, like everyone else, so he looks for a way to hide the color of his skin, so… I won’t tell you more, read, or read them this charming book to yours and you will enjoy.

Little readers recommend: Rafael Carmona Leiva, 2nd year ESO student “This is the third time I have read Elmer and each time it has told me something new. The story of this elephant is very important because it teaches you that the first acceptance is your own, if you don’t love yourself it doesn’t matter if the whole herd loves you. And what happens to Elmer happens to many children who get muddy, dress up, to pretend they are like everyone else. It is a mistake, because beauty is in that difference, in having many colors other than gray.”
