hot, hot, hot!

We didn't find this book in the local library until my oldest was almost too old for it, but that didn't stop her from loving it. Vibrant colors and expressive illustrations always draw me in. Usually it's the meter of the words that keeps me there (and makes me willing to own it, knowing I'll never get to use the excuse that the library needs it back for a while!). In this book, it's the interaction rather than the meter -- simple enough for the smallest, fun for everyone as we pretend to squirt each other. The different size of different words (corresponding to the reading volume) even helps reinforce that it's the words on the page that you're reading. The very best part of the whole book, though, is that it was the "happy, cool, clever" baby elephant that figured out what s/he and all the other big, competent, grown-up animals needed on that hot, hot day. All babies should have this book for the summer nearest their first birthdays! Don't expect to put it away come winter, though.

Perfect your elephant trumpet & be a hero to your kid

This is easily one of Helen's top three favorites, hands down. She loves the elephants and all of the animals splashing around in the water after the baby saves the day. A parent that can produce a credible elephant trumpet can score some major points with the kids when this book is being read.

A masterful presentation

Big, bold, and bright are words that describe McDonnell's expressive illustrations. Warm yellows and then cooler blue undertones subtly reinforce the heat, and subsequent refreshment you can almost feel along with the sweltering jungle animals who find a fun way to cool down on a hot, hot day-a rich accompaniment to the slim, streamlined, straightforward text. Well done!

Great elephant book for little kids!!

The little elephant is hot and leads the other animals to the water for a drink and a splash. The pictures are beautiful and the words are simple and catchy. My 3 year old loves this book - and knows the entire story. Great book to initiate conversations about how to cool off during the hot summer, as well as talking about animal behaviors.


McDonnell's paintings are gorgeous, there's no two ways about it. That and the simple but exuberent plot make for a winner of a picture book for toddlers.
