What did you like about the book: A lift-the-flap counting story of little elephants in Spanish & English. It begins with one little elephant ‘on the web of a spider, along came a friend and the elephant called to invite her’. Then there were two, three, four, and five little elephants. The five elephants fall off the web laughing. The colorful illustrations and rhyming text are sure to entertain young readers over and over.
