The Elephant Who Tried To Tiptoe


The Elephant Who Tried To Tiptoe 

by Andrew Newman (Author), Liesl Bell (Illustrator) Published by: Conscious Stories LLC 

Mom’s Choice Award winning The Elephant Who Tried To Tiptoe is an adorable story about a sweet and curious elephant that worries that she isn’t enough because she can’t do some of the things other animals can.

It is only after recounting her many positive attributes and blessings that she finds peace and happiness with being who she is.

Calming yet fun illustration and rolling rhythm seem to float the reader through this one and it makes a great pick-me-up bedtime story after a rough day or a reminder to love ourselves and appreciate our own unique abilities at school story hour.

Andrew Newman’s The Elephant Who Tried To Tiptoe is everything we’ve come to expect from The Conscious Book Club series ( – a time out and regroup with ourselves and each other through a meaningful and inspirational story.
