Strictly No Elephants
Written by Lisa Mantchev
“A sunny, smart, tongue-in-cheek tale” — The New York Times Book Review
When a young boy with a small elephant for a pet is excluded from a pet club, the two embark on a mission to create a new club for pets. Eventually all types of children with all kinds of animal pets, from penguins to armadillos to skunks, band together and form a club where everyone is welcome — including elephants! A beautiful story that teaches what it means to be a true friend.

I Am the Mountain Mouse
Written by Gianna Marino
Four mouse friends love to have fun, but one always thinks he’s braver and better at all the mouse activities – from climbing camels to swimming in cat water bowls. The self-proclaimed “mountain mouse” is undaunted by any obstacles in his path and finds himself in mischievous situations as a result. His mouse friends are always by his side, however, to help (and mostly rescue) their mountain mouse friend. A fun and entertaining read for all kids – especially ones that love adventure!

Catching Kisses
Written by Amy Gibson
At any given moment/someone, somewhere is blowing a kiss…
Kisses come from everywhere and everyone, but no two are alike. Some feel soft and cuddly, some smell like ginger and cinnamon and some even whisper like butterflies. This lyrical book follows a journey of kisses across America, highlighting famous landmarks from San Francisco to New York. Most importantly, as the book poetically shares, “…once a kiss is given, anytime, anywhere, it can never be taken away.”

  I’ve got seven grandkids, so finding the right gift for all of them is challenging. Once I discovered Elephant Books, I not only found great presents, but the grandkids also love sharing their books with me when I visit. I especially love that it’s a present everyone gets to enjoy!”

Landmarks
Written by Katie Wilson
Applying the tactile features of Montessori teaching, this innovative board book uses enhanced spot UV treatments to teach little ones about famous monuments from around the world, including the Eiffel Tower, The Statue of Liberty, and the Great Wall of China. One-of-a-kind colorful illustrations, sturdy board pages, and no moveable parts make this a unique addition to an early learning collection.

Hopper and Wilson
Written by Maria Van Lieshout
Join two great friends, Hopper the elephant and Wilson the mouse, as they embark on a fantastical journey to discover what it’s like “at the end of the world.” After they take to the sea aboard a hat made from a folded newspaper, Hopper and Wilson both learn how they already have everything they want in each other. This beautifully illustrated book is a great reminder of true friendship and the joy of coming home.

Fluff and Billy
Written by Nicola Killen
What happens when two penguin buddies who do everything together have a small tiff? Playing all day together in the snow and ice is the stuff best friends are made of. However, when a snowball is thrown and feelings are hurt, it’s only great friends who can eventually find their way back to playtime. A sweet book that effortlessly shows how even penguin heart’s beat for each other.

Reading and the love of reading begin at home. That’s why we provide with every shipment new suggestions and ideas for parents to keep reading fun and engaging. Each gives a different way to approach reading with the child and some useful ways to maximize the interaction.

Bookplates

For our younger board book readers we include classic book plates where parents can record who gave the book and when. It’s another way to create special memories for both kids AND parents.

Library Cards

For our slightly older subscribers receiving picture books we’ve recreated the interaction of the old-time lending library experience. Parent and child can record each time a book is read and with whom. It’s another way to emphasize the value and regular practice of reading.

  Elephant Books makes reading even more fun with library cards that my kids love to help fill out. They have a blast going back and looking at their signatures or comments they made each time they read the book.”
