The target audience are 3 years of age or older. It takes place in the jungle. The main characters are Forget-Me-Not and Cherry.

A little lesson about being lost, being found, and being loved.
Also learn the proper terms for different groups of animals - a HERD of elephants, a FLOCK of flamingos, a MOB of meerkats, and a COLONY of termites.
My (almost) four year old son loved this. The sweet, little, well-meaning baby elephant gets separated from his herd while trying to get a gift for his mama (a broken bucket that he thinks is a forget-me-not).
My older boys (six and eight) enjoyed the pair of dung beetles that appear some

PB #8: What a cute story. This is something I can see a parent or a teacher reading a young child, such as a kindergartener. The illustrations and colors used were beautiful and the overall message was just lovely. I liked how the author chose to use "different" animals, and how each had their own name for a group or a community. This story sends a message for children to stick with their parents and not to stray!

A cute one for celebrating Spring and families (Mother's Day). I LOVE the vibrancy and the rough, grainy texture of the illustrations.
A cute children's book about an elephant that gets lost.

ADORABLE illustrations, but too many words for storytime! This would knock it out of the park if there were 5 words instead of 50 per page. Keep illustrating, Michael!
