Uncle Elephant was standing in the garden. His ears flapped in the breeze. VOOMAROOOM! trumpeted Uncle Elephant What are you doing? I asked. I always welcome the dawn this way, said Uncle Elephant. Every new day deserves a good, loud trumpet. I have planted all these flowers myself. Come outside and let me introduce you to everyone, said Uncle Elephant. Roses, daisies, daffodils and marigolds, I want you to meet my nephew. I bowed to the flowers. Uncle Elephant was pleased.

Another sweet, classic bedtime tale from Arnold Lobel, the beloved author and illustrator of the Newbery Honor and Caldecott Honor award-winning Frog and Toad books

Another sweet, classic bedtime tale from Arnold Lobel, the beloved author and illustrator of the Newbery Honor and Caldecott Honor award-winning Frog and Toad books. While his mother and father are away, a little elephant goes to visit his uncle. And what a time they have! Uncle Elephant makes wishes come true, tells amazing stories, and trumpets the dawn.

When Mother and Father Elephant are lost at sea, their elephant son is left all alone. But not for long. Old Uncle Elephant, who has more wrinkles than the beach has sand, makes a new home for his young nephew. In his garden, he shows his nephew how to welcome the dawn with a good, loud trumpet. And when his nephew is reminded of his parents and starts to cry, Uncle Elephant knows how to make him laugh again. He even writes a song just for him to sing:

"I have a song. It's an elephant song. I will sing it and neverforgetthat, of all music played,there is no better madethan an uncle and nephew duet.

Tenderly and with humor, Caldecott Medalist Arnold Lobel tells a story of an uncle and nephew's love for each other and proves himself once again a master of stories for the beginning reader.

My original exposure to this book was a copy from our local library that we checked out to read to our (then) young children. A few years later, I saw that copy in the used books for sale shelf at the library (it was rather worn). I bought it, and it now sits in the bookcase I reserve for our "better" books. This is a book we often purchase as a gift for new parents (or grandparents, as that's more of our social set these days) asking for advice on nice books for children.

This is an exceptional book on many accounts. The story itself is lovely. Mr. Lobel had a writing style that will appeal to the intended customer, but in no way tax the narrator/reader (except for the last chapter, that can still make me a bit misty-eyed).

When asked to rate a book here, the guidance for five stars is "I love it", and four stars is "I like it". For me, the five star rating was an easy choice

It would be very difficult to choose a favorite Frog and Toad (or related) book by Arnold Lobel. Each one has meaning for both the adult and the child. However, I was particularly touched and delighted by this wonderful story of the relationship between the older Uncle and the young nephew. In a simple story Lobel portrays the special way that an older adult loves the younger generation. I give this book as a present to the adults as well as the children. I recommend that the adult read the book to the child in one sitting, and be prepared for an extremely touching and meaningful ending to the story. This story cannot be told often enough. To me it involves the way in which the child gives the gift of life and re-generation to the oder generation. It explains why the adult needs the child as much as the child needs the adult. Those days that Uncle Elephant spent with his nephew were so meaningful that Uncle Elephant would count them over and over again. Perhaps you will begin to count the days you spend with your children in order to better appreciate the value we receive from them. Uncle Elephant may have many wrinkles, but his heart is large and filled with love.

A very cute story that we really enjoy. My son has loved Frog and Toad since he was 2 and somehow I never got the idea to buy him the other books by Lobel until his 5th birthday. He loves this book too. Just like all of the Lobel books the vocab is very repetitive to make it easy for an early reader, but never reads like a limited vocab book. Just like Frog and Toad my son is enthralled by this book and very motivated to read it. Personally I find the book a little sad, but my son doesn't seem to pick up on the fact that the uncle might end up feeling lonely without his nephew. Overall a beautiful story with beautiful illustrations.

The story of a troubled young elephant's friendship with his eccentric uncle. It's the only one of Lobel's I Can Read series that is one book length story. However, it's still divided into chapters, most of which could stand on their own.

My three year old daughter loves frogs... while searching for related items we stumbled on the Frog and Toad stories by Arnold Lobel. I can honestly say that among a sea of mediocre children's media, the Frog and Toad collection are real treasures. We were so entirely captivated by the quality of the writing that we went looking for more by this thoughtful and talented author/narrator.

With expectations set at unprecedented levels, Uncle Elephant did not disappoint. This is a heartwarming tale of adventure in the face of adversity.

Although this particular publication is not narrated by Lobel (as are the Frog and Toad stories) the material is nonetheless, unmistakable Lobel and the narrator delivers the story with grace and skill.

Arnold Lobel always writes books accessible to beginning readers. His stories are more than easy to read plots however. This one is no exception. Poor baby elephant is left alone when his parents are lost at sea. Uncle Elephant saves the day with humor and heart. There are nine "chapters" so beginning readers can feel rather grownup as they read. Both of my grandchildren enjoyed this one. I loved seeing their faces as they read the book with me. A real treat.

Beautiful story of an old elephant and his young nephew overcoming loss and finding joy in togetherness and the moment. Makes me happy whenever I read it (and I'm not typically a fan of most children's books - so boring!) This one is a treat.
Arnold Lobel is a quintessential children's author and his books make for fun reading for the adult as well as the child. My kids enjoyed these books when they were much too young to read them for themselves, and then later enjoyed them again as they read them to themselves. Now we're buying them for my little nephew, and I'm sure I'll buy them again when I have grandkids!
