Summary

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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Nicely illustrated with photographs, this book invites children to observe a family of elephants in the Namibian scrub desert over a period of months. The text and photos focus mainly on Liza, a newborn cared for by her mother, aunt, brother, cousin, and extended family members. O'Connell, the subject of The Elephant Scientist (2011), a volume in the Scientists in the Field series that she coauthored with Donna M. Jackson, discusses matters such as how elephants communicate, greet one another, feed their babies, and protect their young from lions. Printed in large type, the text is relatively short but informative. The crisply reproduced photos, taken in the field by O'Connell and her husband, Rodwell, illustrate points made about the family of elephants and their surroundings. Two appended pages provide additional facts about the African elephants' dwindling habitat, aquatic ancestry and relatives, communication, teeth, and lives in captivity. A valuable addition to library collections on elephants.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2014 Booklist"
