I have used Elmer by David McKee many times to promote learning. It's particularly good to use for a topic about colour or to stimulate numeracy activities. The first story is still my favourite and I have used it countless times to promote learning within a variety of topics. It is particularly good to include in a topic on colour but it’s also great as a stimulus for numeracy activities, science topics as well as arts and crafts. The Story: Elmer is a patchwork elephant with a colourful personality but he doesn’t like being different to the other elephants
