Too Many Elephants in this House

I recently read my first Ursula Dubosarsky book, The Red Shoe, so naturally I was interested when I saw that one of her picture books had been picked for National Simultaneous Storytime this year I figured I should read it too.

Too Many Elephants in this House was an Honour Book in the 2013 CBCA Awards. Ursula Dubosarsky and illustrator Andrew Joyner teamed up once before for the very successful The Terrible Plop.

A great story for the toddler set about why having a house full of elephants can be a problem.

Even if Eric doesn't necessarily think so

Mainly because your Mum says so. Mums do spoil many things….

Although the elephants themselves can be helpful, and fun.

How will Eric solve the elephant problem? Kids all over Australia will find out at 11am today.

To increase the fun NIDA are staging a theatre version of Too Many Elephants In This House this week, and SBS are making audiobook versions in 13 community languages.

Sadly I've been unwell this week and missed this special story time at work today.
I've also missed all the excitement of the SWF so far :-(

Did you come down as planned? What/who have you seen?

I'm hoping to get myself well enough to attend the Saturday events at the Wharf.
