9781784930394: Storytime: the Perfect Job for an Elephant

Elsie is still only a young elephant, but decides she should start looking for a job. But what would the perfect job for her be? Her mother encourages her to think about what she enjoys doing and together they decide that she might like to try being a chef. But when Elsie returns home after working in Zebra's Snack Shack, sad and unhappy, it's time to think about what else Elsie is good at. After trying lots of jobs, from being a musician to an artist, Elsie begins to give up hope. They've all ended in disaster! But when an emergency breaks out at the Snack Shack, Elsie's perfect job is found - a firefighter! Throughout the years, QEB has built this successful Storytime series. These charming books combine colorful illustrations with heart-warming narrative, each with its own unique message.

Review:

'This is a lovely little story... a great addition to our home library.' Let Them Be Small - blog The bright illustrations are a joy to look at, adding more drama to this cute tale. Nayu's reading corner What we love about the QED Storytime range is the discussions that emerge around the story, actively encouraged by helpful story discussion pointers raised at the end of each book. Read it Daddy The reader warms to Elsie as she tries to find her role and learns that we should never give up; something always turns up. QED's Storytime books are an excellent collection - there is plenty of variety, with a range of excellent authors and illustrators giving a different feel to each book. Schools and libraries would do well to purchase each one in the collection in the knowledge this would give a well-rounded selection. Parents in Touch
