Another Picture Book Review by Jean Matthew Hall.

Five elephants in a jungle. Five totally unique elephants in a jungle a dozen shades of greens and blues.

GET THIS BOOK–That Fruit is MINE! Your kids will enjoy it again and again. And you won’t’ even need to have a philosophical discussion with them about the theme of

C-O-O-P-E-R-A-T-I-O-N.

P.S. This little book is a 10!
