If An Elephant Can Wear a Mask So Can You: Animal ABC's

If an Elephant Can Wear A Mask So Can You: Animal ABC's is a delightful animal ABC book aimed at children aged 3 and above, as well as self-readers aged 7 to 9. The book emphasizes the importance of masking up and staying safe through its beautifully illustrated whimsical pages and rhymed verses. 

Its lasting relevance continues from the time it was written in 2020 during the height of COVID 19 through today as the world continues to encounter different variants of COVID 19. In the United States, where masking for K-12 was mandatory for both students and staff, and continue to be encouraged to limit outbreaks, this book is a vital and engaging teaching tool.


Published November 2021.
