Hope and Soap for the Elephants?

Tags: Words or phrases to categorize this post for the tags section

HOPE FOR THE ELEPHANTS is my latest early reader (in the US) and a chapter book (in UK and the rest of the world)!

HOPE is about all the wonderful people who are giving hope to the elephants. The IVORY soap is a reminder that we can also be the hope by never buying ivory.

Thanks to P&G, l will be giving a bar of Ivory (soap) with each book with the words: "The only Ivory you should buy..."

To get a copy of HOPE FOR THE ELEPHANTS, visit your local library or independent bookstore. To order a copy in paperback or hard cover, go to to Indie Bound:

Be the hope for the elephants!
