What To Do If An Elephant Stands On Your Foot

What To Do If An Elephant Stands On Your Foot by Micelle Robinson and illustrated by Peter Reynolds.

Goodreads Summary:  Safari etiquette can be tricky. Fortunately, our trusty narrator can help. Sort of. From what to do if an elephant stands on your foot (“Keep calm. Panicking will only startle it!”) to how to escape the attentions of a crocodile (“Well? What are you waiting for? Wave your arms around and shout for help!”), our plucky guide leads our unlucky hero on a jungle adventure, barely avoiding tigers, a rhino, snakes, and–uh-oh. What’s that? Well thank heavens the monkeys are friendly at least!

This cute and funny story is told in a style similar to Laura Numeroff’s “If You Give A Mouse” series. Young readers will find the sequence of events laughable.  Reynolds illustrations fit the story and it’s tone perfectly.  It’s a great read a loud for children of all ages.  I recommend it for any school or classroom library.
