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" --Bulletinshow more
