A lovely book came my way recently.
A new children’s picture book, Elephants Have Wings, by acclaimed author Susanne Gervay, is inspired by the ancient story of the blind men and the elephant. It’s a beautifully illustrated book that promotes the importance of peace and inclusion to younger readers.
Elephants Have Wings was inspired by Susanne’s journey to India and South East Asia and she hopes the book can open a discussion among young people about peace and positive ways to navigate a world torn by conflict.
This is an absolutely beautiful book which makes a great bedtime read for the kids. Since I first read it to Little L (4 years old and my youngest) it has become a bit of a favourite. It’s also quite an easy book to read for my older two.
