Synopsis

Wild Reads: Elephants by Paul May

This marvellous book about elephants covers a wide range of topics. Chapter 1 tells the heart rending story of a family of elephants from the baby elephant protected by its mother to the grandmother elephant who is coming to the end of her life. Packed with facts and illustrations (did you know that elephants get through six sets of teeth in their lifetime, and that each tooth is the size of a brick?!) this is a wonderful introduction to the animal world for young readers. For real elephant enthusiasts this book also suggests websites and places to visit to find out even more! Other titles in this series: *Big Cats *Spiders *Frogs and toads *Bees *Dinosaurs *Wolves *Snakes *Sharks *Rats *Whales *Crocodiles *Dogs *Horses.

Reviews

The minute I opened [Wild Reads], my kids, aged 8 and 5, devoured them They are filled with colorful, very detailed drawings to interest the non-readers, and have large print for young readers. The books don't talk down to the kids, however. There are plenty of big words to learn, but each book comes with a handy glossary in the back These books help make nonfiction more accessible to children and show that nonfiction can be just as fun and interesting as fiction. --Wired Magazine, GeekDad Children will go 'wild

--San Francisco Book Review
