Super El

Elmer and Super El by David McKee is another whimsical Elmer story.  Elmer helps distract the other elephants so Super El can sneak by them to get his super hero costume mended.  
Elmer's jungle is always a delightful mix of strange plant life and endearing animals.  The writing for the Elmer series is witty and the story line has subtle humor.  
Elmer has amazing insight into life. Although Elmer has been around since 1968, his story is timeless.  We all want to fit in and then we all have to figure out it's better to just be yourself.
Found some good K-2 lessons plans using Elmer.
