We picked up “Little Why” by Jonny Lambert at the library and instantly fell in love with it! “Little Why” is about a young elephant who is told to keep in line behind the other elephants. On his journey through the jungle he spots different animals and he is amazed by them. He wants to have “long-lofty leggy legs” like the giraffe and “speedy-spotty, fuzzy fur” like the cheetah. The story ends with a lovely reminder of why Little Why is special.
This is a great book to read then discuss the differences between characters and what makes each of us special. The illustrations are just so perfect, the pictures of the different animals are beautiful and full of character!
A really simple sweet picture book! Highly recommended! xx
