March 2021 'ELEPHANTS ON PARADE' Unboxing!

By: Shanleigh Klassen

We celebrated all things elephant with our March 2021 ELEPHANTS ON PARADE box!

We had such a great time curating this delight box featuring books and goodies focused entirely on Earth's largest living mammal.

Our March 2021 book pick was The Elephant in the Room by award-winning author, Holly Goldberg Sloan. This inspiring contemporary story is all about family, being separated from loved ones, and the heartwarming impact of human-animal connections.

Book The Elephant in the Room sits on open OwlCrate Jr box, signed bookplate and author letter peeking out from book. A bookmark showing elephants at top right corner, paper and flowers surround items.

"Sila has had an unbearably hard year since her mother left for Turkey to secure her immigration paperwork. But things start to change when she meets a kind old man and a beautiful creature named Veda."

Our first edition hardcover book also included a signed bookplate and a special author letter from Holly herself.
