If I Were an Elephant is a touch-and-feel tactile board book – perfect for babies and toddlers. This book is safe for a baby to have from birth.
This little book is THE VERY FIRST BOOK I ever had for my son. It was given to me as a gift two weeks after he was born. It holds a special place in my heart and is still on the book shelf in his room. I think we probably read this book 100 times together!
If I Were an Elephant is part of the Jellycat Baby Touch and Feel Board Book series. The series includes lots of titles – you can find a book that suits your child’s interest, or makes sense for your family (perhaps it follows the theme of the nursery, matches a special stuffed animal, pairs well with living animals at your home). Follow this link to visit the Jellycat website and the current list of “If I Were” books. I think of these books as a cross between a board book and a stuffed animal! Because of the soft, fun tails on each book!
Any of the “If I Were” books are wonderful for young children from birth to around pre-kindergarten.
The books are chunky board books – perfect for little fingers to touch and handle. Filled with vibrant colors, short text to read aloud, and lots to touch and feel.
Touch-and-feel books are basic parts of baby and toddler libraries. At that age, the “work” for each child is to develop their eye sight and learn by touching and feeling things in the world around them.
