This weekend I launched my new series of children’s books called “The Baby Elephant Series”. This series has been written for young children up to 7 years of age. Children love to learn by doing, and each book provides not only a story but an activity to complement the story. Baby Elephant is the main character, and we follow him on his journey to learn about the world around him.
Meet Baby Elephant in the first in a series of stories about a baby elephant. In this story, Baby Elephants want gumboots. Do elephants even wear gumboots? This one does, but he can’t decide what colour gumboots he should have. This book introduces children to the colours green, blue, yellow, and red, as well as the emotions grumpy and happy.
Baby Elephant learns how to make the colours orange, green, and purple. As Baby Elephant paints, his parents show him how to make new colours. This book assists in developing a young child’s understanding of colour. There are colouring pages at the end of the book for children, and if you go to the www.julie-edwards.com website, you’ll find some free downloadable pages.
It’s a rainy day, and Baby Elephant goes on a treasure hunt. As Baby Elephant searches for his treasure, his grandmother explains what different shapes look like. Baby Elephant’s treasure hunt develops a young child’s understanding of triangles, circles, and squares. There is an activity at the end of the book for a child to complete.
I’ve also added free downloadable PDFs for each book on the respective page of my website. There are new books released each month, so please stay in touch and follow me on social media. If you haven’t already done so, please subscribe to my newsletter.
