The Big Elephant in the Room

  Okay, this book made me smile. Actually, it made me laugh. Now I don’t know if a child would understand what “big elephant in the room” means, though the copyright page gives a good definition: “…an expression that describes a big problem or situation that is being ignored-usually because it is really embarrassing.”  Whether a child can comprehend the meaning or not doesn’t matter much because they will still enjoy The Big Elephant in the Room  by Lane Smith with its humorous illustrations and embarrassing situations (that they probably can relate to). And they just might learn a subtle lesson about being a good friend. Published in 2009 by Disney Hyperion Books, The Big Elephant in the Room  is sure to induce chuckles in young and old alike (and those who fall somewhere in the middle-like me).
