I read this to my daughter, it's a good book to make kids aware about and not hide secrets through an analogy of a blue elephant that grows with time just like a secret does until it's too late and unmanageable.
Bought this Blue Elephant for nephew, who is just 2 years old. Though he can't read yet, but the elephant illustrations are so catchy and attractive, he plays with book for hours.
I personally read it, it's beautiful story of little girl and the Elephant. Book is specially designed for kids & everything from font, illustration, story theme, rhythmic balance matched perfectly! Loved the book!!!
Now this book was equally enjoyed by both me and my mini me !! We loved the innocence of the little girl in this book . The little girl has a pet elephant who she hides in her room . Yes you read it right 🙂! . . She find its exciting and fun in the begining .She hides it from her mom and her family members ,but becomes cluless and worried when the elephant in the room begins to grow!! . .
The deeper meaning of this story only becomes clear after you have read it completely . You will defenitely appreciate how the author has so brilliantly imparted a beautiful lesson to our little ones . She has conveyed to them in this rhythamic way how secrets i.e the elephant in the room needs to be addressed or shared with their moms . . The elephant in the room could be anything or any situation our little ones are unable to cope up with or share with us . This book explains it to them to confide it all to their mom . It explain how it is ok to tell your mom and believe that she would make everything fine . . The graphics and the illustration by are defenitely worth the mention as they were so captivating and beautiful! . Highly recommended and our current personal favourite❤️
This book has been devoured in a matter of 2 days! My 6 year old just loved the build-up of excitement this gorgeous book covers, and was hooked from the get go. Written in a gentle, rhyming prose, the author deftly engaged us. I'm a big fan of Dr.Seuss and Julia Donaldson especially because of the sing-song, rhyming quality it offers a "read-alouder" so I completely enjoyed reading it out the first time around to her. The illustrations are fantastic - the hues of blue are just so vibrant - you can't stop thumbing through the book again and again to stare at them a little while longer. Definitely a keeper for us!
This is really a beautiful book by Vidya varadarajan

Vidya is a mother. Vidya makes up silly stories for her young children in order to get them to sleep. Unfortunately, the stories are never dull enough. 😁 . Simplicity of words makes this books intresting and it's rythymic balance make it's easy to remember.
My blue elephant is a stroy which you want to rhyming during the bedtime and you want to complete it till the end .
Beautiful Illustration makes this book intresting for young kids. And elephant it self is big attraction for kids. It's a must buy. It's not hard cover book, it's Pages are little soft so extra care needed .
This is book is about a Pet friend of a gal who happens to be an animal, and concept of sharing and caring for each other between the bond they share and how after a while, he has to go away from the gal and she wishes to meet him someday.
Simple description for kids to understand in the book, shown how kids are so innocent to understand the attention they get. Also an important moral “all good things come To an end”, and “nothing is permanent”.
Totally recommend the book for night time story books. Short and sweet priced at Rs 200. Reasonably priced and available online.
The Blue Elephant . Written by Vidya Varadarajan , graphics by Zainab Tambawalla and published by Scholastic, the paperback is a simple read for little ones. A short story about how a kid hid a blue colored elephant in her bedroom. Imaginations run best during young age and this book is going to fuel them for sure. A blue colored elephant living in a kid's room! How can an animal as big and majestic as an elephant live in a kid's room? Read to find out more. . Lil D kept staring at the blue colored elephant pictures all the time. I personally loved the color palette and the illustrations very much. Some secrets can never be hidden for long like the elephant in the story :) Definitely worth a read and a keeper!
A beautiful book for kids. The story is simple and interesting. The Fonts are big and langauge is simple so kids can read a bit on their own too. Its perfect if your child is learning to read. Illustrations add the fun element to the book. A lovely addition to my kids books collection.
