Summary

This story is designed to get your children to sleep at bedtime. Baby Edward becomes lost, and the other elephants go on a journey to find him. Children are drawn in to the rhythmic and melodic nature of the adventure, and as the journey unfolds, so do the tricks to lull the listener to sleep. 

In this story, the first of the series, the elephants go across the Savanna, through the marshes, up a river, and through a waterfall to a cave beyond to try and find the lost Baby Edward. 

Immersive audio with sound effects and environmental ambience engages children. The audiobook uses a number of established techniques such as repeated melodic phrases (read in hushed, gentle tones), characters that yawn (studies have shown this to be contagious especially with children), and the occasional sound that is similar to “white noise” (like a waterfall or radio interference), which is widely used as a sleep aid for babies and likened to sounds experienced in the womb. Always start at the beginning of the story, and if all goes to plan, you won't reach the end.

Lovely bedtime story

Bought for my 5 year old neice. She loves it!
Lovely story, beautifully read with soothing sounds and some repeating phrases that really seem to help her settle down for sleepy time!

Perfect bedtime story

We listen to this most evenings before my girls go to sleep. Quite often they're asleep before it ends! Stomp, stomp, zzz zzz!

Good but too short

It is a good bedtime story as it has a relaxing mood and calm voice but I wish it was longer.
