In honor of World Elephant Day, author Rebecca Heller will host a book reading and signing for her new children’s picture book ELEPHANTS.
The first in a series of picture books about endangered animals, ELEPHANTS follows a baby elephant through a day of activities. A portion of the book’s sales will benefit Amboseli Trust for Elephants (ATE), a nonprofit organization that aims to ensure the long-term conservation and welfare of elephants in Africa. During the month of August, the Amboseli Trust (www.elelphanttrust.com) will feature the ELEPHANTS book as part of the Elatia Project where a supporter can sponsor an elephant family for a year for $50 and receive the book.
Heller, a Los Angeles based creative is the author of various works of fiction and non-fiction. She spends her days as a high-school college counselor and mommy to a precocious four-year-old whose curiosity for animals became the inspiration for the book. She created Elephants through her publishing company, Like a Girl Press. Upcoming picture books include DOLPHINS, WHALES and POLAR BEARS, with proceeds going to nonprofits that support each group’s survival.
ELEPHANTS retails for $11.99 on www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com
