Reviews Lumpy the Elephant


Lumpy the Elephant

It's a wonderful story

I bought this book for my great-niece, when I sent two other Diana M. Hawkins books to her mother for her birthday. I was told my great-niece loved it and wants it read every night at bed time ... It's a wonderful story about self worth, believing in yourself, and each person's place in the world. If you are on bed time duty, this is a great choice for reading to a child.

Great Christmas Gift

I bought this book for my nephew and was fortunate enough to have a talented friend that made "Lumpy" to accompany the book. What a great gift! The story line in the book is wonderful - the lessons taught are sure to make an impression on the little ones. It's great that some authors are still not only telling a beautiful story but teaching children some important life lessons as well. I highly recommend this book for any child that enjoys being read to and loves to follow along.

Great Children's book

Lumpy the Elephant is a fun and inspiring story for children aged 3-8. The book's brightly colored illustrations bring its endearing characters to life. The book is easy to read for first and second graders and perfect for reading to the younger set.

A Winner!

This delightfully written and illustrated book shows children how one's differences can actually be their strengths. An outsider among the toys, Lumpy the Elephant becomes the hero rescuing a friend in need. This classical story is sure to become a child's favorite.
