Elephant and Mommy

Elephant and Mommy

by Laura Gates Galvin, Jessie Cohen, Smithsonian Institution

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Elephants are big and baby elephants are also big, but they are still recognizable as babies. The one in this board book sticks close to her mother. Mom shows her baby how to eat delicious foods like bright orange pumpkins; later, she takes her for a swim and then demonstrates how to rub her skin until it is smooth. But like most kids, this young elephant knows that rolling in the dust is fun and that it will protect her from the hot sun. The photographs are terrific. You really get a sense of the size of the creatures, including their huge feet, toenails and trunks. Informative and interesting, this book about Asian elephants would make a fine addition to any library or personal collection. Part of the "Let's Go to the Zoo!" series created in conjunction with the National Zoological Park, part of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
