Stephen Murray

A former banker, consultant, and product guy, he has worked for huge companies and venture-funded startups, managing big P&Ls and taking ideas from notes on a piece of paper to ongoing businesses. He has lived all over the US and now lives abroad in Berlin. Stephen attributes many of his achievements in life to the education and curiosity that reading instilled and enabled, and he is grateful to share this love of books with kids and parents through Elephant Books.

We all have hopes and dreams for our children and “Dare to Dream Big” captures what all parents or caregivers want for them. Each page presents a positive message in a way that’s understandable for even very young kids. The diversity in the illustration is another reason we fell in love with the book. We had a great time sitting down with Lorna and learning more about her as well as her fabulous book.

“How to Catch A Dinosaur” by Adam Wallace is a wonderful, rhyming tale about a little boy and his diverse group of friends as they try to win their science fair by catching a dinosaur. With bright illustrations, the story comes alive as the children set traps throughout the school. These traps get more and more elaborate as the story unfolds.
