Sunny’s Morning Surprise is a bright and colorful baby elephant story that will at once both entertain your child and bring attention to important concepts:
- inclusion and rejection
- handling disappointment
- practicing joy and patience
- and keeping an open and generous heart toward others
Author Emily Smith has created a beautifully expressive story to inspire the imagination and delight the heart.
This story follows Sunny the baby elephant as he ventures into his world on a solo quest for friendship and acceptance. Sunny is first disappointed and rejected by others who overlook or exclude him without consideration, primarily because he is not one of them. His sunny disposition prevails, however, and Sunny continues to pleasure in the beauty of the day and draw comfort from the assurance of his mother’s love.
A wonderfully illustrated story with important life lessons.
