Seeing stars? Professional book reviewers only award a star to exceptional books. More than one star means experts from multiple organizations felt the book was outstanding.
Little Elephants is based on a traditional Mexican counting song and is one of the oldest (and best!) methods of putting a child to sleep — the verses, which describe how a number of elephants come to be balancing on a spider web, can be repeatedly endlessly by changing only the number of elephants each time around.
This English adaptation is the only one that truly matches the melody of the Spanish so that parents can sing it in English as well as in Spanish.
