Elgar E. Elephant is a lovable overstuffed toy who often encourages Beethoven Bear and Mozart Mouse to learn something new. He surprised all of his friends one day by playing the trombone! Huggable and wise-beyond-his-years his bright plaid vest and monocle make him stand out in a crowd. Medium size. Elgar E. Elephant is a replica of the character first introduced in Lesson Book 1. Suggestions are made in the Lesson Book for integrating the animals into the lesson.
