Description

This funny picture book about friendship, family, identity, and why we have names is illustrated with bright collage art and is a perfect selection for story time.

What’s in a name? Herb and Sophie are eating breakfast one day when they notice a coupon on the cereal box for an elephant. Imagine how much fun they could have with an elephant!

When the nameless elephant arrives in the mail, he announces that it is Herb and Sophie’s job to name him. Herb has many suggestions (String Bean, Sweet Potato) and so does Sophie (Buttercup, Twinkle Toes) but nothing seems quite right to the huge and very brave elephant.

Why do we need names anyway? Where do names come from? Where did your name come from? How do you make your name your own?
