A beautiful non-fiction picture book that follows the story of a herd of African elephants
October 2021 Book of the Month
Follow a herd of elephants across the savannah as they trek to water, guided by the matriarch's memories of more verdant times gone by. Told in gentle rhyming verse, this is a follow-up to What Did the Tree See? from the same team. There is lots of extra non-fiction content on African elephants, the challenges of habitat loss and poaching, how rangers and elephant orphanages are helping, and what we can do to help too.
Told in gentle rhyming verse, this beautiful non-fiction picture book follows the story of a herd of African elephants as they journey across the parched savannah in search for a water hole.
The matriarch tells of all the sounds of the savannah, and how the landscape has changed over the years. Still, she remembers where to find water, just as her mother did before her.
Accompanying non-fiction pages at the end of the book include information on African elephants, their family structure and migration patterns, as well as the challenges of climate change, habitat loss and illegal poaching, and what we as readers can do to help.
