Forget-Me-Not Series includes three books by Michael Broad: Forget Me Not, Friendship Blossoms and Beautiful Buttercup.
Forget Me Not
: Monty is a very young elephant, and his Mama is concerned for his safety. She tells him the two important things he must always remember. First, he must stay with their herd, where he will be protected from danger. Second, he must never forget how much his mother loves him. Then, Monty sees something bright and blue that is half-buried in the ground, and he thinks it might be a bouquet of forget-me-nots.
He wants to bring the flowers to his Mama. Forgetting her words, he stops to dig it up, but when he looks up from his task, he discovers that his herd has moved on, and is nowhere in sight. As he goes looking for them, Monty finds many other animals grouped together--a flock of flamingos, a mob of meerkats, and a colony of termites. But now, the rain is coming, and Monty still hasn't found his herd. What on earth can he do? This warm and gentle story for younger children features large color illustrations on every page.
: Following on from the success of the first book in which he got his name, this book sees Forget-Me-Not trying to make friends. His mama points out that friendships are not always instant and sometimes they take time to blossom, just like the blossom on the trees. It takes a while but it's always worth the wait. So when Forget-Me-Not meets Cherry, he decides to wait and see what happens...
: When the other animals jeer at Ugly, the little warthog, Forget-Me-Not shows them that she is both beautiful and brave. A new story about the little elephant learning about the world. Bright and sensitive illustrations full of wit and action for the youngest children.
