Read Out Loud: Mike Curato’s LITTLE ELIOT, BIG CITY

Sometimes it’s tough being a little guy in a big city. Poor Elliot happens to be one of those guys. He has to go through a lot of trouble to do the things many of us take for granted because he’s so small. Thank goodness we don’t have to shower in the sink, most of us can readily reach our ice cream, and can buy cupcakes easily! Life is rough when you’re a tiny elephant.

Author and illustrator Mike Curato reads Little Elliot, Big City, a book about a small elephant trying to make it in the big city. Elliot encounters many obstacles but doesn’t give up. Watch Mike’s Read Out Loud episode to get caught up on the Little Elliot series; Little Elliot, Big Family goes on sale October 6, 2015.
