Ryke Leigh Douglas created a great children’s book with an important message for all ages. I really liked it! I believe every single child will fall in love with Tumeleng who has an adventurous spirit and is the cutest elephant that you will ever read about. And have you seen this precious cover?
I recommend The Tale of Tumeleng as it is a great book for you to think about the importance of bravery and how it is ok for children to be afraid, but with the strength of family and friends they can overcome it. Curiously, elephants were always my favorite animal in the planet, they are just enormous majesties and beautiful. I have always thought that they are kind, united and friendly. All great values to pass to the children.
The illustrations are truly beautiful. I recommend this book to all parents to read to their children.
