Parvati the Elephant’s Very Important Day
by Shobha Tharoor Srinivasan
Will Parvati be able to complete the job that she has set out to do?
Parvati the Elephant’s Very Important Day shares a universal story about duty, responsibility, and success. Structured as a rhyming picture book, Parvati showcases Kerala temple traditions by narrating a day in the life of a temple elephant.
Elephants, despite their magnificent girth and size, are gentle, and highly intelligent animals who balance the ecosystem. These pachyderms have been preyed on for years and are in danger of extinction.
We hope this story will remind children and adult readers of the beauty and majesty of elephants and their value to our world.
