Hiding Phil (Eric Barclay)

Hey there, everyone! Today, we read Hiding Phil by Eric Barclay, a sweet and silly story about an elephant named Phil.

Three children discover a new friend one day – a derby-hatted elephant named Phil. They invite him to play, and the four friends (plus one dachshund) have a fun day together. However, in the midst of their adventures, the children realize that their mother and father will be home soon, and may make Phil go away! They have to hide him – but how do you hide an elephant?

This was a fun, simple story for young readers. The text is minimal, relying often on the charming illustrations to tell the story, yet fun to read and full of personality. The length was perfect for baby bookworms, and JJ had a grand time with this one. Tons of fun! Baby Bookworm approved!
