so funny I mean honestly!
Silly, fun, interactive book about a moose that is too big to fit on the pages of this book. With a little creativity and help from a friend, Ernest finds a solution to his problem.
This is a fabulous story about friendship, with a big giant fold-out moose at the end!
Catherine Rayner is the author of several fabulous picture books (Solomon Crocodile, Augustus and His Smile) and one of my favorite books by her is Ernest, the Moose Who Doesn't Fit. It is perfect for talking about differences in people (or moose) and also about friendship because of the silent but ever helpful chipmunk who never gives up on Ernest.
Ernest is trying his hardest to fit into the book which is clearly too small for his sprawling and epic moose-y bulk. The play with language as he struggles to fit in is great fun to read aloud. "He struggles to SHIMMY, SHIFT, and SHUFFLE in forward. He tries to SQUIDGE, SQUODGE, and SQUEEZE in backward." Together Ernest and his buddy find a unique way to get him settled fully inside the book. Kids love the big, fold out solution.
The artwork is quirky, bold and, of course, BIG as each page is filled with moose bits. They may not talk but Ernest and chipmunk pop with personality and happy friendship. This is a great read aloud for a group or one small friend.
It's amazing what can happen with a friend!
A very big moose like Ernest can't fit in a small picture book -- until his friend the chipmunk helps out. A fun book to read aloud, makes kids laugh!
Excellent for kids to read, there are lots of funny sounding words to delight them with. Also, I love how the story affects the physical book.
A fun read about Ernest, a moose who doesn't fit in his own book! Very silly and enjoyable.
A sweet story about a moose who can't fit into the book and how he and his squirrel friend figure out a way to make it all work. Good for discussing helping people fit in or feel welcome.
Poor Ernest cannot fit into this book, until he gets a little help from a friend! This is a great book for storytime - it has an enormous, unexpected flap in the end...the children marvelled at the size of the entire Ernest!!
