The Elephants and the Leaking Tap by Balachander Vijayakumar

This picture book series for children features three elephants.  They are easy to tell apart because one has a blue trunk, one has yellow feet and one has purple ears.  Janani Balachander is the illustrator and her graphics are charming.

Publishing Push and the author graciously shared a copy of this book with me for review.  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

They have a leak in their sink and want to get it fixed.  Repairs that worked on them don't work for that.  One remembers that someone fixed a leak in the past but he can't remember what they called what they did.  He did remember it started with a "p".  By asking those whose professions begin with a "p"  about it, they learn several job titles and skills.  It's not until they see a van go by that they find the right person. 

Can you guess who it is?

This is a delightful read with cute characters and teaches the child about careers, too.
