Elephant Books helps create little readers!

Elephant Books

As an elementary teacher, turned stay at home mom, there’s a special place for books in my heart.  I love all things literacy and get all giddy when I hear the words “kids books” especially high-quality titles I’ve perhaps not heard before! I have two young boys whom I hope fall in love with reading as much as I do, so far so good!!

When I heard about Elephant Books I just knew I had to give them a try.  A book subscription service carefully curated by educators, parents, and kids, with high-quality, recently published hardcover books.  I kept reading on to find out all the extra goodies, name plates, old school library cards, and reading tips. I was sold!  One thing parents always asked during conferences was how can I support my reader at home, well Elephant Books helps parents take the guessing work out by providing cards with suggestions and ideas for parents to keep reading fun and engaging.

High Quality Hardcover Books Right to Your Door

Our first box came with two titles I had never heard of before Where Bear and Chimpanzees for Tea, my three year old loved both of them.  My teacher brain was whirling with ideas on how many things could be taught with just these two books (which tells me how much thought went into choosing these titles).  Right away my son wanted to know about the library cards that came with the books. I explained when I was little, when we checked out a book we had to have our books stamped on cards just like these.  Of course he wanted to stamp his card right away to show that we had read the books. Such a cute and fun addition to the subscription!

In a magic kingdom not too far away, armies of frogs are invading and only (gulp!) one child can possibly help! This mind-blowing story only requires one photo that search parties will use to scour the kingdom for the chosen child. You will also need to provide details that will be incorporated into the story to make sure the one true child is identified! Minimum effort for this one. Maximum reward!

“My six year old daughter loved seeing her name and photos in print.  The “Wanted” book even included her favorite food and song incorporated into the story.  The books encourage a love of reading and I highly recommend Kabook for kids of all ages, especially for baby shower, holiday or birthday gifts!” – Robyn, Happy Kabook Customer
