Elmer by David McKee promotes a sense of identity, self-awareness, acceptance and open-mindedness.
 
“There was once a herd of elephants. Elephants young, elephants old, elephants tall or fat or thin. Elephants like this, that or the other, all different but all happy and all the same colour. All, that is, except Elmer.”
 
Elmer is a colourful elephant who stands out from her herd. Unhappy with being teased he changes his colour to fit in but discovers he enjoys being different. The other elephants accept Elmer for who he is and realise it is okay to be different.
