I think that it is interesting how children are drawn to certain things. We may encourage  toy cars, baby dolls or musical instruments but children will pick what they like based on their own intrinsic desires. My son as a young child was drawn to elephants. Whether they were at the zoo, in a book or a stuffed animal, that is what he liked… well, LOVED! Elephants were his favorite thing for a long, long time and we never knew why except for his explanation that they were “the best animal”. This is why I have a fondness for elephants and wanted to make a post that celebrates national elephant day! Enjoy the following free printable pages to use with your little ones for fun, for a learning unit or for elephant day.
