Elephant Books is a children’s book subscription box for ages 0-6. They specialize in recently published books and new discoveries, so they don’t send anything that’s movie tie-ins, have re-purposed characters, or are “classics.” Their goal is to send books that are original, literary, and appeal to both boys’ and girls’ interests.

This is a review of the Picture Books subscription for children 2-6.

They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee and a free replacement if you receive a book you already own!

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Where Bear? by Sophie Henn – Retail Value $16.99 (found here for $19.72)

This book is absolutely adorably illustrated. The story is about a bear cub who lived with a boy, but then he kept growing and growing into a big bear that just didn’t work living in a house. It’s time to find a new home for him – but where, bear? They go through different environments and eventually figure out the right one for bear.

My Little Half Moon by Douglas Todd Jennerich – Retail Value $16.99 (found here for $13.09)

What a sweet book. This story is about a girl who notices that there’s only a half moon in the sky and worries that it’s lonely without its other half. She goes off looking for the other half of the moon. She looks and looks, and eventually spends enough time looking that the moon is full again. It’s so cute.

The Verdict: This was my second delivery from Elephant Books and I’m quite happy with it! I really love that they don’t send books with movie tie-ins or reused characters and that they promise a free replacement if you get a book you already own, and a 30-day money back guarantee. I thought their picks this month both had beautiful artwork and were really cute stories. My son and I both enjoyed reading these two books together and I’m looking forward to future boxes.

Such nice illustrations. I’d love to take the bear book and frame the illustrations for a nursery or a toddler’s room. I think a little one would love if their favorite book was framed and hung up (a second copy).

Leslie, that’s a great idea. I really love the art in that book, too!
