Jessica Dailey

MY TINY PET ELEPHANT is a magical and colorful story that inspires children to let their imaginations run wild! If you could choose any animal in the world to be your tiny pet, what would you choose? A Tiny Pet Elephant? The book helps children ignite their creativity, get lost in their imagination, and know their dreams are worth exploring. Author Jessica Dailey is a Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant and Mom. Working in a pediatric setting, she used interactive children’s books to aid in treatment sessions. With the understanding that play is imperative in healthy childhood development, the soothing tone of this story paired with vivid illustrations provides families with a book that promotes development skills in a creative medium.
