We love Elmer!
About the event
Started in 2016, Elmer day is a national celebration of the popular children's character, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant. On Saturday 27 May hundreds of events will be taking place in bookshops and libraries across the country.
Created by David Mckee, Elmer was first published by Anderson Press in 1989. Since then, Elmer's iconic patchwork and playful character have made him a firm favourite in millions of households across the world. Elmer encourages children to accept other's differences and practice tolerance and kindness.
