Book Review – An Elephant in my backyard

First the music

Do you have a pet at home ? Perhaps you don’t like any little animals in the house but your little ones have been asking for one for the longest time … perhaps they will get a dog called Bruno on their next birthday or an adorable cat called Poochki ?

So our little girl Maya brings home Acchu ( bless you ? ) So you didn’t get it – Maya brought home Acchu …a baby elephant she found in the temple and sheltered in her backyard which Maya’s family refuses to believe .

This an adorable little tale  narrated by Shobha Viswanath and  illustrated by Sadhvi Jawa. A story about life’s simple pleasures , about the children’s love for pets, baby animals , on how they are naturally caring even before their parents think they can teach them to show empathy and love. And to top it all , each time how  your little one giggles on hearing “Acchu” is priceless .

Illustrations are beautiful from Little Maaya cuddling the baby elephant to hopping on to his back to take a ride.
