CELEBRATE ELMER DAY ON 28th MAY 2022!
Get ready for the most colourful day of the year! For this year’s Elmer Day we are celebrating the themes of inclusivity and friendship that run throughout the Elmer books and honouring the life and legacy of Elmer’s creator David McKee. His was a singular voice and a shining light in children’s books, whose creations, including Elmer, Mr Benn and Not Now, Bernard, touch the lives of many generations of children around the world.
Whether you're a school, library, bookshop or a family wanting to join in at home, this year's Elmer Day is open to anyone who wants to take part.
