After Busy Bees we will have a special story time with Ellen Fischer as she reads her book, If an Elephant Went to School. Would an elephant learn the ABCs if she went to school? No way! She would learn to use her trunk as a nose, a straw, a hand, and a hose! Through a series of questions and answers, readers learn about animals and their unique behaviors. And in the end, you might find yourself asking just what would you learn.
