“Hippopotamus!” little elephant called.
“Yes, little elephant, what can I do for you?”
“Excuse me, please, but could you tell me what the crocodile eats for dinner?”
Here is a story that takes place a long time ago, before elephants had trunks for noses . . . One day a very special elephant comes along—an unusually curious elephant—and she has an important question that she needs answered. Little does she know her question will lead to an amazing discovery.
This vibrant retelling of one of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved Just-So Stories is sure to be appreciated and enjoyed by young children. And don’t miss the fantastic gatefold where little elephant’s nose gets stretched from bump to trunk!

It's a cute twist to a Rudyard Kipling story. It's a legend about how the elephant got its trunk, and it would be a fun book to have in your classroom library, so the kids could use it during SSR or something, or of course, the teacher could use it as a read aloud. Read full review
