Elmer’s Walk

Written by David McKee

Suitable for: 0-5 years, 5-7 years (Key stage 1)

Available braille grades: Grade 1, Grade 2

Elmer is enjoying his walk: smelling the flowers, watching the clouds, listening to the waterfall. But each time he points out one of these lovely things to the other animals, they all say they don’t have time to stop. They’re far too busy. Luckily Wilbur arrives at last and shares Elmer’s enjoyment in the stars. A celebration of mindfulness from master-storyteller David McKee. Audio description wonderfully read by Daniel Kaluuya, British actor, Oscar Winner, BAFTA Winner.

Elmer is an elephant with a bright coat covered in coloured squares. He lives in a jungle with lots of friends. We're going to take a walk with him, and I expect we'll meet some of them front cover together?
Oh, watch out Elmer!
Above Elmer's head, there's a cheeky orange monkey swinging on a
rope-like tree branch.
It's time to say goodnight to Elmer and Wilbur. Thank you Elmer for sharing the special surprises you found in your jungle.
I really hope you've enjoyed being with Elmer. Do you have some favourite places where you live? Make sure you stop to enjoy them sometimes, won't you? Stand and listen. Smell and feel.
