Edna Elephant

Margaret Park Bridges (2002), 48 pages
Illustrated by Janie Bynum
Audience: K - 1st Grade
Category: Animal, Easy Reader, Fiction

Beginning readers will enjoy this collection of (very) short stories about Edna Elephant. First, she dances (and falls). Then, there is an incident with a tight coat, another with some cookie batter, and one more with flower stems. One sentence about Edna on each page, mild humor, and pleasant, full-page illustrations make this a cheerful read. (Reading Level: 1.7)
