My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

I Love My Pet Elephant is an adorable book for young readers. The words are simple and the text rhymes. The illustrations are cute, colorful and often funny.

This book encourages children to use their imagination. Who wouldn’t want a pet elephant? I Love My Pet Elephant is a great book for children to read or for parents to read to them.
