Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
African elephants are very large and need a lot to eat. African elephants use their trunks to pick up food, suck in water, squirt water, and communicate with each other. Elephants use their tusks to dig for water and to protect their babies from lions. Mother and baby elephants travel together. The bull, or male, African elephant is the largest animal on earth. This is a wonderful informational picture book about African elephants. Each page has beautiful, colored photographs that correspond with the one or two lines of text. Nevertheless, the transition of topics is a little choppy. The back of the book includes a map of where these elephants live in Africa, a glossary, an index, further reading resources and websites. I recommend sharing this book with all young children who love animals. African Elephants could also be used for a world history lesson about Africa or in a science lesson about animal traits, animal survival, and/or mammals. Part of the "Pull Ahead" series. 2006, Lerner Publication Company, Ages 3 to 9.
