Discusses elephants, their African habitat, food, and behavior.
Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan AtteburyElephants are fascinating creatures, as this book from the "African Animals" series indicates. Simple text, appropriate for early readers, is distributed in one or two sentences per two-page spread. Four sections are set apart with bold type. A world map and an African map make it easy for readers to understand exactly where elephants live in Africa. Four short sections include the basics about the characteristics, the habitats, and the life cycle of African elephants. Full-page, colorful photos show elephants at home on the savanna, bathing and playing in the river, lolling in the mud, being friendly with each other, eating and drinking, and roaming as families and herds. End material features a simple glossary and a list of web and book resources. As with others in the series, this book is a ready supplement for science and geography lessons. Additionally, it is one that will aid the emergent reader as he or she seeks to learn information just for the fun of learning. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
