Overview

"Steve Bloom's breathtaking photos carry this book and will keep it being reread. Familiar animals, appearing newly grand." —Chicago Tribune
From Babar to Dumbo, the elephant has long fascinated children and their parents in equal measure. Here, eighty stunning photographs encompass every aspect of the elephant’s life and world: elephants big and small, African and Asian, in the wild and domesticated, at play and at rest. Whether taken from the air, from underwater, or from the side of a jeep, these images will capture the imagination of any child.
Steve Bloom’s extraordinary photographs depict the elephants in their natural environment as well as their unique relationships with people. Here are elephant babies playing in the dust, families rolling in the mud, polo-playing elephants, elephants at bath time, impressive herds roaming the plains, and much more. The entertaining text by David Henry Wilson provides an almost encyclopedic range of facts about elephants, from why they flap their ears to how much they weigh and how much they eat.

    Beautiful and Informative

    I bought this for my 2 yr old grandson for Christmas because he is fascinated with elephants (following a trip to the zoo). I almost didn't want to mail it to him after scanning the pages! The photos are absolutely wonderful and while the text is above his age level, the pictures alone keep his attention. This is a highly informative book that is appropriate for children of any age and packed with facts about elephants that most adults would find new and interesting. I highly recommend it for any child who likes elephants.
