Head on safari to the grasslands of Africa to study African elephants in this beautiful nonfiction field guide for kids.

You might know that African elephants are the largest land animals on Earth, but there's so much more to learn about these tusked creatures. Turn the pages to find out why the grandmother is in charge of an elephant family, and why big ears help elephants cool down! Meet a baby elephant as it takes its first steps, and discover how to tell the difference between an African elephant and an Asian elephant. The book also looks at the conservation challenges these iconic animals face due to climate change and ivory poaching.

Written by elephant expert Dr. Festus W. Ihwagi and featuring stunning illustrations by Nic Jones, African Elephant (Young Zoologist) is part of an exciting new series of animal books from Neon Squid aiming to inspire the next generation of biologists and conservationists.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In these installments in the Young Zoologist series (2 new titles), readers dive deep into the world of some of the planet's most majestic and beloved creatures. Highly visual, these books make a splash with their detailed illustrations, opening "Fact File" charts on their featured animals, as well as a "Before You Start" guides for readers that lay out key items needed for studying animals in the field. Topical double-page spreads present a range of pertinent subjects, from the animals' anatomy, life cycle, and daily activities to their social and family lives and conservation statuses. African Elephant takes readers to Africa to learn what elephants eat, how they communicate, and where their migration routes take them. What makes this series stand out is that the illustrations, bite-sized facts, and clear labels make it easy for the youngest of readers to navigate the text and absorb the information there. An immersive reading experience for the young and curious."
