MERRY THE ELEPHANT
It’s Merry the Elephant’s first day at school! 🐘
When her teacher, Miss Moo, tells the children to paint, Merry excitedly gets to work on her picture. 🖌 Maybe it will be displayed on the special board reserved for the best ones.
But . . . oops! She accidentally spills blue paint all over Gee the Langur’s picture. 😰
Gee is angry. He rips Merry’s drawing in half.
Now, Merry is upset. But instead of bursting into tears or throwing a tantrum, she calmly reaches for another sheet of paper. Will this inspire Gee to follow suit?
Written by Karishma and illustrated by Pia, this charming tale provides opportunities for children to explore concepts such as feelings and self-management in a healthy manner.
Ms Moochie Books is an independent publishing house. They publish contemporary Indian books for children. What sets them apart is their unique story → book process. All new stories are taken to classrooms by storytellers. Feedback from the children is passed on to the author. She makes changes. This loop is iterated till the children give the story an emphatic thumbs up, after which the book is made. This allows them to actively involve the reader, i.e the child, in the making of the book.
