The Baby Elephant Series

The Baby Elephant series is designed to help educators, as well as parents and guardians, to teach young children colours, shapes, counting, and much more. The adventures of Baby Elephant encourage children to explore and participate in various activities as they learn.

The first three books are now available in both Kindle and paperback versions. Each book has a number of free downloadable resources available.

All schools and library visits are on hold due to COVID-19 virus. If you would like a school visit and activity session contact me via the green button below.
