I recently joined NetGalley a wonderful website that allows us to receive books in exchange for a review and one of my first picks was this absolutely awesome book. I highly recommend this book as a fun read-aloud for young children (Pre-K to grade 3). It is also Common Core aligned, if you are a teacher.
From the Description on NetGalley:
All’s well until Elephant comes in, feeling sad because he has no hair. Can Maxwell help? Of course! After some careful thinking, he devises a solution to help even Elephant feel his best.
Cale Atkinson’s bright, cartoon-like digital illustrations beckon readers into Maxwell’s world in this playful tale. Rhyming text, speech bubbles, and a refrain make this story a fun read-aloud accessible to early readers. Full of personality and style, Maxwell has a genuine charm and enthusiasm for helping others that kids will find immediately contagious.
This bright and colorful book has a unique story with imagination. The animals look whimsical and the pictures will have toddlers and children giggling while they learn the importance of being creative and helpful to others. The text is easy to read and you will be amazed at how much hair stacks up in this barber shop.
My son was laughing and pointing out little things in the scenes and has asked me to read this book several times since we first read it. It has quickly become one of his favorites.
Here is the info so that you can buy this awesome book for your library:
