You’re Safe With Me


You’re Safe With Me.‘ whispers Mama Elephant. The babies are unsettled. She rocks the babies in her trunk. She tells them not to worry about the wind that puffs seeds from faraway lands. The babies should not fear the thunder groaning beneath the rain’s weight. Returning to the sea, flashing lightning will become shiny stars. The little animals should not worry. They are safe with Mama Elephant.

Chitra Soundar’s poetic text is warm and encouraging. She paints word pictures that light the page. Poonam Mistry’s pictures are magical, almost age-old splendid, rich and mesmerising.

You’re Safe With Me’ is a ‘forever’ book, the perfect bedtime read, baby welcome, comfort and treasure.
