There’s an Elephant in My Bathtub Blog Tour: Review and Prize Pack Giveaway

Can you imagine having wild animals like an elephant, a gorilla, a camel, a lion, a bear, a rhino and even a cobra hidden in unexpected places around your house? Would you react as calmly as the dad in Connie Bowman's new picture book There’s an Elephant in My Bathtub? Powered by 'wild' imagination and adorable illustrations, this charming story keeps the reader wondering how the animals get where they are found and why they are so friendly and cooperative until the very end of the book, where a sweet surprise awaits.

There are plenty of children's books about animals out there, but still, There’s an Elephant in My Bathtub offers a unique, fascinating way to nurture a child's love for wild animals and to introduce them as rather polite and harmless figures. Its colorful, realistic illustrations help get young readers acquainted with animals that they would normally see at a safari park. Meanwhile, the author cleverly teaches about fun facts about the wild side of these animals by contrasting their behavior against the dad's expectations. The interesting interaction between the dad and the animals also suggests that if we treat wild animals with respect, they may not be as fierce or fearful as we commonly think.

The book also makes me wonder how to become a parent that connects better with the kids. If I can sometimes open up my mind and think like a child, I might understand my kids better and minimize the likelihood of tensions and conflicts. There’s an Elephant in My Bathtub is a pleasant read for everyone in the family and will sure make a wonderful gift for the holiday season and beyond!
