“Stand Back, Said the Elephant, “I’m Going to Sneeze!” by Patricia Thomas

Published December 6, 2012 by Dagmar

stand backOh, oh.  The Elephant is going to sneeze.  The last time he sneezed, terrible things happened.  This was a very fun book that was applauded after I read it to our pre-k class today.

Synopsis: Elephant warns everyone that he’s about to sneeze.  Every animal begs him not to sneeze, because the last time he sneezed, the monkeys were blown out of the trees, feathers were blown off all the birds, the fur was blown off the bear, etc.  Luckily, a little mouse scares the elephant just enough that he forgets to sneeze.  Everything looks like it will end well, until the elephant falls to the ground laughing, because he didn’t sneeze.  Oh, oh!
