I can’t help but smile when thinking about Babar the elephant and his family.  I remember reading about him as a child and there’s just something warm and inviting about the way the stories are written and illustrated.  There are over 42 Babar book titles published now, did you know that?

Babar is celebrating his 80th birthday this year – I didn’t realize he had been delighting both children and adults alike  for that long!  In celebration, there are many new products in the works celebrating in a vintage fashion with board books, toys, puzzles, games, and stuffed animals.  If you want to check those out, you can buy them at Saks Fifth Avenue.

In the top photo in this post you can see Emma enjoying reading Babar and His Family, one of the sturdy board books recently published.  This charming story is adapted from the picture book Meet Babar and His Family which was first published in 1973.  It’s a kind of first introduction to Babar and each of his family members, sharing who each member of the family is…

  and what they like to do during each season of the year -Springtime, Summertime, Autumn, and Winter!

Babar and His Family is the perfect first intro to Babar for little ones!  It’s an added bonus that you can talk about the different seasons of the year and how they differ while reading about the children having water fights in the warm sunshine (with their trunks!), raking leaves in the autumn, and ice skating in the winter.  We enjoyed this one!
