Product description

Last summer, the Sibert Honor-winning duo Caitlin O'Connell and Timothy Rodwell witnessed the birth--and growth--of a baby elephant. In this intimate account for preschool through elementary readers, find answers to questions such as: What do newborn elephants look like? How big are they? What threatens them in the wild? Do they bully each other? Are they stalked by lions? What happens if they don't get enough food or water? Are they at risk of extinction?With irresistible photographs and a text that places the reader in the wonder of the savannah, this is a book to treasure for all animal lovers.

Review quote

"[O'Connell's] accounts of elephant growth, social behavior, and environmental and human challenges are both detailed enough to satisfy demanding young naturalists and easy for younger readers to understand." --"Kirkus ""O'Connell's account of baby Liza's development is straightforward and unsentimental yet filled with detailed and fascinating scientific information about the lifelong ties among elephants that will resonate with readers' own feelings about family." --"Horn Book Magazine ""Nicely illustrated with photographs, this book invites children to observe a family of elephants in the Namibian scrub desert over a period of months...A valuable addition to library collections on elephants." --"Booklist " "This is a beautiful story told with care and compassion. It is obvious that the author has great respect for these animals and hopes to inspire the same feeling in her readers." --"School Library Journal ""A solid and useful introduction to basic facts of African elephant life for elementary-aged readers" --"Bulletin"
