    One Reply to “The Saggy Baggy Elephant”

    1. Illustrations were lovely, as usual, and as a kind of odd child I was pretty familiar with the primary subject: getting bullied and not fitting in. The elephant in the story gets harassed by a parrot who says he looks like his skin doesn't fit, unlike all the other animals he was partying with. So, predictably, he's hurt and tries to find (possibly painful and dangerous) ways to be like everyone else, until he joins up with other elephants whose skin is as baggy as his and he realizes he's fine [...]

    2. Simply adorable. As the little elephant did not know he was an elephant I loved it when he said "I'd better hide in a dark place where my bags and sags and creases and wrinkles won't show".

    3. Classic golden book that I remember being read to me as a child. I love that I now get to share it with my boys.

    4. Another of the handful of Little Golden Books that are priceless. About being comfortable in your own skin.

    5. I am buying books for my five month old nephew for Christmas. The Saggy Baggy Elephant was one that I remember liking it but didn't remember too much about. It's a cute book. Is the theme about being true to yourself and not listening to people? Maybe. I like the story of a baby elephant and I hope that the most beautiful nephew in the world will also enjoy it in time.

    6. A little elephant dances his way through the jungle. A parrot mocks the little elephant for the way he looks. This upsets the little elephant and he tries to find a way to improve his looks. A cute story about feeling comfortable in your own skin.

    7. I don’t remember reading this as a kid, but I did enjoy reading it to my son. Teaches that it is okay to be yourself.

    8. Gorgeous illustrations of course and oh my, this little elephant is so cute I want to adopt him and give him a home in my suburban Sydney backyard. However, there are some issues worth addressing: There are several animals threatening to bite bits off the elephant or simply devour him whole, which is a bit too graphic for a little child's imagination in my opinion. Secondly, the message rubbed me the wrong way ever so slightly. In the end (spoiler ahead) the elephant meets other elephants and th [...]

    9. In our read aloud(s) today with the kids, I was asking them questions about the books I had brought and read. When one of the boys asked me what I use to read when I was their age. The question stumped me and I couldn't think of any on the spot. The kids told me I had some hw to do so I thought that this would be the perfect place to do some research, hw for the kids, and a little stroll down memory lane!I always read golden books, Disney books, Dr. Seuss, and many more! But for some reason the [...]

    10. The Saggy Baggy Elephant, written by K. and B. Jackson, follows Sooki, the elephant on his journey to find himself. After a parrot tells him he doesn’t look right with all his saggy skin, big ears and big nose. Sooki goes off to discover what he is. He asks all the animals he comes across if they know what he is, or how he could get his skin to be tighter, but none of their ideas work. When he finally asks a hungry lion, the lion responds, he isn’t sure, but he is hungry enough to eat him. S [...]

    11. In this story about self-acceptance, the young elephant gets bullied for looking different from the other animals; he alone has skin that doesn't seem to fit. He tries several dangerous processes to make his skin look tighter, but then he's comforted when he returns to the other elephants and realizes that if their skin is all loose too, he must be made that way, and it's all okay.What bothers me about that moral is that the protagonist's self-acceptance was contingent entirely upon finding othe [...]

    12. Sooki the baby elephant loved to dance until one day he met a parrot. The parrot told him that none of his features fit his body and that his skin was saggy and baggy. The parrot laughed at the elephant's appearance.The baby elephant tried everything to make his skin fit. Everytime he tried something new, he ran into danger and was forced to run away. Finally,he gave up and ran innto a cave to hide. he heard a lion coming up the path saying, "I am so hungry, I could eat a elephant. Sooki let out [...]

    13. This is another Little Golden Book illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren -- he had quite a prolific career as a LGB illustrator -- so the artwork is extraordinary and extraordinarily good. I liked the tiger and elephant illustration that was used for the front cover, but the best illustration in the book has to be the line of dancing elephants. It is so incredibly sweet and quite funny.The overall story is fine, even good, although I probably would have sat on the mouthy parrot a long time ago. I don't [...]

    14. Maybe I should count this as an audio book. It's the first book my parents ever read to me. It probably drove them nuts, reading the same story night after night until I fell asleep. But it is probably where I learned compassion for others less fortunate or different from my own small circle of family and friends. This and the other books in the "The Little Golden Books" series like "The Little Red Hen" and "The Poky Little Puppy" instilled in me my love of reading. Just like reading now, these [...]

    15. So, we've got this guy dancing through the forest. One two three KICK. One two three KICK. He's saggy. He's baggy. Aaaaaand he's an elephant! Not that he knows it. All he knows is that he's getting laughed at for being so saggy and baggy, so he's gonna try to shrink himself.No, not by talking to the tiger - you'll just get eaten up. No, not by soaking in the river - you'll get eaten up by crocodiles. Maybe hiding is the answer? Nope, you'll get eaten up by lions. (Luckily, at this point there's [...]

    16. The tale of the saggy baggy elephant was one of my favorites as a child. The poor little elephant Sooki is at first an innocent carefree creature of the forest, that is until confronted by a saucy parrot who makes him feel uncomfortable in his own skin, literally. Determined to become normal, Sooki sets out encountering sly and dangerous animals around every corner. Eventually however after meeting a whole heard of saggy baggy elephants, he comes to learn that being yourself is more than enough. [...]

    17. ** spoiler alert **Seekor gajah kecil merasa minder setelah diejek oleh seekor burung beo. Kuping kebesaran. Hidung kebesaran. Kulit kebesaran, saggy dan baggy. Segala usaha dia lakukan agar kulitnya tidak lagi saggy dan baggy, tapi percuma. Untung lah akhirnya dia sadar bahwa gajah adalah makhluk yang cantik apa adanya setelah dia melihat sekawanan gajah yang menolongnya dari serangan seekor singa yang sedang kelaparan.Terkadang orang harus berkaca pada orang lain, untuk dapat memahami diri sen [...]

    18. As a child I remember not liking this book all so much. in particular I remember the picture with the elephant floating with his round belly sticking up. I have no clue why I didn't like this book. I just remember a negative feeling. Now I read it with my children I think it's a lovely book teaching children to be happy with who they are. Maybe I was having such issues as a child, who knows.

    19. Honestly I rated this a 3 because I liked it more than my children did. By the time by 2 boys were able to understand the moral/ meaning they were more in to superheroes and dinosaurs etc. My daughter liked and understood it but it wasn't one of her favorites(but as the last of three children and 17 grandchildren she had a ton of books to choose from). As a parent I give it 5 stars But from my children's view.1.

    20. I would give this book one and a half stars. The lesson is good for readers that are beginning to appreciate the content of books that are read to them, and the story is humorous and quite memorable, especially considering its brevity. Additionally, the understated illustrations by Gustav Tenggren are a nice touch. The drawing of the crocodile in the water is phenomenal!!!

    21. This is a cute story of an elephant who doesn't know he's an elephant. He dances in the jungle, but leaves destruction behind. A parrot scolds him so the elephant sets out to try to fit in since he has saggy skin. He eventually finds his family when he cries for help from being eaten by a lion. It is then he finds out he is an elephant.

    22. The lesson in this book is one every person should learn. Love yourself no matter what you look like. There are other people just like you, and you should never get down on yourself no matter what. The way the elephant found the herd was just too cute! He almost got eaten a few times but overcame so much in such a short time. Now he can be happy with himself.
