Junior Elf books were first published many years ago by Rand McNally & Company.  At the time, these books were enjoyed by households of all kinds - they were affordable and yet playful, educational, and perfect for reading aloud to all ages.   This special reprinting is presented with the original artwork and story as it was crafted so many years ago.   Books in this series are factual, fanciful, humorous, questioning, and adventurous.  These quirky time-capsule moments may cause a chuckle or two - or even a gasp - but their charm still delights!   

Author Bio

Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones––exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.

We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.

To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible.
