Book Overview

"[In] a joyous twist on the counting-book concept, a girl decides how many elephants are needed to pull a train out of a tunnel, paint the ceiling, go to the beach. . . .Bond's well-executed illustrations [project] a contagious sense of movement. A puckish sense of humor prevails among elephants who skateboard, don sunglasses, act tough, and even wink at the audience." --SLJ.

1993 "Pick of the Lists" (ABA)

The Right Number of Elephants

The Right Number of Elephants is as silly as an elephant driving a car. First, each page helps the child count from ten to one by illustrating it with whimsical pictures of elephants doing everyday activities. Second, learning to count is a very important skill for young readers. Third, mixing fantasy with reality is a very good combination. For example, getting ten elephants to block the sun at the beach is ridiculous. If your child is having trouble with counting, this is the right book for them.

The Right Book For Your Elephant Lover

My 20 month old son LOVES elephants, and when my grandmother gave him a copy of this book we could hardly read all of it because he was excitedly shouting A ELEPHANT! over and over again. The reason I'm looking it up here is because we literally wore out our first copy. I like the book because it's different, and cute without being cutesy. The illustrations are fabulous. I highly recommend it to anyone.

A fun counting book

This is a fun, imaginative counting book, great for young children (2-4). "If you suddenly need to pull a train out of a tunnel and save everyone on board, then the right number of elephants is 10." It counts down to one elephant as a "very special friend." Very nice, and cute illustrations.
