I won this book in a Goodreads ebook giveaway. I was so glad I won so I had to read the book, even though my kids are a bit old for the book. I would say the book is best suited for preschool age children since it is geared toward learning the alphabet. Children will not realize there is an educational aspect of the book though, because they will be so excited to see the pictures and hear the crazy antics of the elephant. One thing I would have liked to see in the book is the food names written a little differently. The food words were written in all capital letters on the photos of each food object. I think it might have been better to make the first letters capital and the rest lower case, since the main idea is listing food words in alphabetical order. Maybe even highlight each first letter to make it more pronounced so children would associate it more with the alphabet and sequencing of the words. This is because without an adult pointing out the words, I doubt preschool children would realize the words are in alphabetical order.
In any case, the story was funny, and the pictures were cute and fit very well with the story. It is definitely a fun way to teach children the alphabet without them realizing they are learning!
