Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Max the elephant is having growing pains. He wants to be independent from his mother, Mama Mirabelle. Max does not want to hold Mama's tail when crossing the savanna. He wants to go to the big watering hole (not the little one) with his friends. So Mama shows Max and his friends a movie to explain how the different animal babies have a period of time of growing before they can explore more of the world on their own. However, Max still feels like he is ready now to go out on his own. To show that he is grown up enough, he walks out into the savanna by himself. Shortly, Max discovers that he really is not quite ready for all that is out there and he races back to Mama. She helps him understand how parents help their young and she shows another movie of animals caring for their babies. There are colorful illustrations of Mama, Max, and his friends. Mama's movies are color photographs of different animals and their young. The story is based on a teleplay, "Mama Mirabelle's Home Movies" and there are other books in the series.
