The pages hold more than a story! The details in each illustration provide loads of mini-lessons and visual reinforcements to engage your child even further. They can "seek and find" an endless amount of elements hidden in the background art or study which elements are used in the art before them...

Toulouse couldn't find any elephants, but there are plenty of ELEMENTS here. What elements were used to make this ice cream cone? Which kind of lines and shapes do you see?

Can you find 4 swirly lines in this picture?  Can you also find dotted lines, zig zags, etc

What happens to the mouse's smock each time he meets a new elephant?  How does each element help make his art better?
