Soon to be a Christmas classic. A bit of holiday magic before bed comes alive with the help of an Elf and a special reindeer. If You Were an Elf, is the first book from the Sailing to Sleep storybook collection.
The story begins with a Christmas list that is not complete. With the help of a homeless reindeer and the magic of an Elf, your child will set sail from land to sea. Imagine a child’s bed turns into a ship, and their sheets the sails! The adventure sails your child to help solve a problem while learning a lesson about the kindness of having a pet. Your child will love interacting throughout the story with questions like, “If you were an Elf, what would you do?”
Author, Carrie Garvin, lives in a cottage on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two rescue dogs. Coming soon are other Sailing to Sleep interactive stories that will include: If You Were a Pirate, If You Were a Mermaid, and If You Were a Monster. Carrie draws inspiration for her children’s books from a handful of delightful, high spirited grandchildren, her rescued pups, and waterfront living. She believes, “If you read to children, they will listen, and they will ask questions.” What a wonderful way to spend time with children before they sleep!
