So Light, So Heavy

So Light, So Heavy by Susanne Strasser addresses the problem of an unbalanced teeter-totter. There is an elephant on one end and a growing collection of animals on the other. Elephant wants to teeter but is flummoxed by the imbalance his size creates. This engaging board book neatly solves the problem with an unexpected resolution. The words that describe various sounds make this a particularly good read aloud.
