My Big Embarrassing Elephant is a clever and funny picture book about how one girl goes about hiding a very literal elephant in the room, only to discover she may not need to disguise it at all.
Maya and her family have a problem. They try ignoring it, dancing around it, even sweeping it under the rug. Yet the elephant in the room remains. And Maya is at her wit’s end figuring out how to hide it from everyone. Then a new friend moves in next door, and Maya begins wondering if there might be a better way to deal with the whole situation? Angie Lucas’s clever story about friendship in the face of overwhelming problems is given hilarious life by Sesame Street animator Pierre Collet-Derby. A fun read-aloud for story time, bedtime, and anytime.
This empathetic and kid-friendly story is perfect for teaching lessons about how to deal with embarrassment. Readers who like other compassionate books about social emotional learning, like The Rabbit Listened, by Cori Doerrfeld, The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig or Who Wet My Pants by Bob Shea will love My Big Embarrassing Elephant.
