Too Many Elephants in this House!

9780670075461In Eric’s house there were too many elephants – in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, even in his bedroom!

The elephants take up a lot of space, but Eric loves every one of them. So when his mum says they have to go, Eric comes up with a clever solution to a very BIG problem

From the creators of The Terrible Plop – Ursula Dubosarsky and Andrew Joyner, comes this delightfully energetic story, full of fun and exuberance.


Ursula Dubosarsky and Andrew Joyner’s  wonderful picture book Too Many Elephants in this House has been selected as the National Simultaneous Storytime book for 2014!

This year NSS takes place on Wednesday 21 May at 11am (AEDT) and we would love it if you could join us by sharing Too Many Elephants in This House. Everyone can join NSS – it doesn’t matter whether you are a home school, a public library or even a University Library!


Register to participate – it’s free and we have some great activities and resources available to support your National Simultaneous Storytime event,  with plenty more to come! For more information about National Simultaneous Storytime contact ALIA’s Events team.

In the meantime, Ursula’s very talented son interviewed Ursula speaking about Too Many Elephants and has shared that video with all of us.

The video interview is a lovely clip to share with your students to introduce them to Too Many Elephants, or perhaps to use after a shared reading of Too Many Elephants to further explore the book. Enjoy!
