Sometimes Sophie worries — not during the day when she is busy with family and friends, but at night when everything is calm and quiet. Her family all try to help, but somehow they just make her worries worse. Until her mother thinks of a new approach … that might just involve an elephant or two! But wait, don’t think about purple elephants, whatever you do! Whimsical and humorous, this little girl’s story of finding a way to ease her worry resonates with children and parents everywhere.

  • A fun story with a gentle message that resonates with parents and children everywhere.
  • Anxiety is an issue affecting more and more children; this is a simple, humorous story that could help children address some of their worry.
  • The first picture book from a talented new author–illustrator duo!

Don’t Think About Purple Elephants is an excellent resource for social and emotional learning for parents and teachers.
