My Elephant is Blue
What will help when the blues leave you feeling as though you’re crushed beneath an elephant? Will a smile do the trick? A gentle nudge? Chocolate? A walk? Can anyone—or anything—make the elephant go away?
Warm, empathetic, hopeful, and often funny, My Elephant Is Blue is an inviting exploration of the experience of living under the weight of sadness.
A reading guide with discussion questions based on the book, activities to help children explore its themes, and a list of resources for more information will be available April 2023 at flyawaybooks.com/resources.
“With support and the realization that you can’t fix a problem by ignoring it comes some relief—and a plethora of other colors for the child’s new companion to move through. The collage illustrations are a warm complement to this comforting story about addressing childhood mental health struggles.”
