But No Elephants is another one of my childhood favorites. A little old lady lives all by herself until one day when an animal salesman sells her a little bird. The bird sings while she cooks. Then he sells her a beaver who helps her cut wood for the fire. The salesman continues to come back and every time she reminds him “but no elephants.” This is a very cute story!
Also a good time to teach your children about saying NO! to salesmen that come to your door.
