The Book

This is a delightful counting book from the creators of Skinnamarink.  These icon childrens' entertainers have made another winning contribution to the picture-book world that kids will love.  

"One elephant went out to play upon a spider's web one day. 

She had such enormous fun, that she called for her baby elephant to come."

This imaginative book spun from the talented trio's songbook is mesmerizing.  A diverse crowd joins the spider on his web... one by one.   When number ten climbs aboard everyone is having so much fun that they call for EVERYONE to come play with them.  ALL the jungle friends respond and climb aboard to have a blast.   Oh my!  Is that a good idea?  How strong is that spider web anyway?  

"Uh-Oh! SPLASH!"

Kids will not be disappointed because the mishap turns into a celebration with EVERYONE invited to a party after the spider spins his magic and rebuilds his web once again!  

The whimsical illustrations are extraordinary.  They are full of action, happiness and delicious detail. Kids will go back again and again to enjoy this fun book.  I highly recommend "Sharon, Lois and Bram's One Elephant Went Out to Play!"

The trio, known simply as Sharon, Lois and Bram, formed in Toronto in 1978 and went on to create two top-rated children's television shows, The Elephant Show (CBC/Nickelodeon, 1984-88) and Skinnamarink TV (CBC/TLC, 1997-98), and to release 21 full-length albums (many of which reached gold, platinum, double platinum and triple platinum). They have won countless awards and were appointed to the Order of Canada in 2002. In 1998 they performed at the UN General Assembly and in 1994 they performed at the White House Annual Easter Egg Roll and Hunt. They also performed a run at the renowned Palace Theater on Broadway. In 2018, Sharon and Bram celebrated their 40th anniversary. After Bram's retirement in 2019, Sharon and her daughter, Randi, continue to entertain children and share their message of love. Their first picture book, Sharon, Lois and Bram's Skinnamarink was a national bestseller.
