Book of the Week: Rose and the Bald Headed Elephant



This is a story about Rose and the Bald-Headed Elephant. With some of the funkiest illustrations I've come across in a long time. I like what Your Heart Out had to say about it. "Rose tries to help Mr. Elephant past his self-consciousness by showing him all the wonderful things she sees in him. We all need a friend like Rose: someone to bring us up when we’re down—and talk us down from getting a toupee."

My kids love it.

You can find a sweet, simple (brief) video about the endearing book below.
