River the Elephant
DescriptionToday River the Elephant is going on a canoe trip, but what fun will he have tomorrow? Only your young storyteller can dream up his next tale. As children craft original narrative adventures during play, they’re actually growing literacy and communication skills that they’ll take into adulthood. Since River isn’t a book or movie character with a pre-written story, kids are even freer to create from the unknown, again and again. Plush pals are also essential for supporting emotional development. They invite both sexes to develop their empathy, cultivate their nurturing side, and learn how to share feelings. A perfect baby shower present or holiday gift, River is handmade with care from extra cuddly cotton!

Invite children to act out stories as you read them aloud, whether it’s a published story or one of their original tales. Giving physical expression and movement to their characters adds another layer to their learning and supports physical development.
