Monmouth Community Hub will celebrate a popular children’s fictional character on Saturday 27th May with stories and activities about Elmer the Patchwork Elephant.  The Monmouth event starts at 11am and will be one of hundreds of national Elmer Day celebrations taking place in bookshops and libraries across the country.

Created by David McKee, Elmer was first published by Andersen 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 others’ differences and practice tolerance and kindness.
