Description

In this funny, rhyming read-aloud for very young readers, a grumpy Mr. Elephant just wants some peace and quiet—that is, until he gets it.

Packed with hilarious rhymes, fun-to-shout-out sounds, and the frenetic energy of a happy, busy town, this raucous read-aloud follows an exasperated elephant through the course of his day. From barking dogs to clattering dishes at the coffee shop to a boisterous marching band, the noise is just too much. Mr. Elephant wants nothing more than for his loud town to PLEASE QUIET DOWN!!! But what happens when he ends up getting exactly what he wishes for? 

Snuck into the fun is an important message about seeing things from the perspective of others. Share this story with anyone who loves to make noise and anyone who loves to hate it!
