Elephant is so heavy, and all the other animals are so light. How will the seesaw ever go up and down? Toddlers will be drawn in by repetition, opposites, humor, and an unexpected twist in this board book story about Elephant's quest to get the seesaw to teeter. A cast of friendly animals--who are all so light --try to help move the seesaw, but Elephant's side won't budge. He's so heavy . Then what happens when a child swoops in with other plans? Short, simple, and memorable, this board book offers a satisfying story arc. "Such a heavyweight for such a light little book--delightful" -- Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW "An amusing introduction to the concepts of weight, balance, and opposites" -- Publisher's Weekly
