Description
Little Elephant and Mama Elephant are going for a walk. "Hold on to my tail," says Mama. "If you want to ask me a question, tweak twice." Tweak, tweak "Mama, what is that?" Little Elephant is curious about the frog, the monkey, the songbird, the butterfly, and the crocodile--and especially about what a little elephant can do. Mama knows just how to answer, to help her cherished Little Elephant grow.

Eve Bunting's tender text and Sergio Ruzzier's whimsical illustrations make this walk with Mama an excursion any little elephant would enjoy.


Praise For Tweak Tweak

"Young children will enjoy following Little Elephant’s fantasies....Along with the imaginative silliness, the nurturing parent-child tenderness is the core of the story."—Booklist   "The pairing of Bunting’s traditional text, powered by an elegant repeating structure, with Ruzzier’s offbeat art is unexpectedly fabulous."—Horn Book Magazine, starred review
