Synopsis: In this book from Ami Rubinger, author and illustrator of “Big Cat, Small Cat” and “Dog Number 1, Dog Number 10,” we learn that elephants are a colorful bunch.

Previewing the book: The English version is available for preview on Amazon USA. You can also find an animated version of the Hebrew book on YouTube by Googling the Hebrew title. (last checked 13/11/2014)
