Learn more about your favourite topics, from cats and sloths to motivational quotes and mindfulness in a fun and interactive way.

I so enjoy the ultimate animal books for kids by this Australian author and zookeeper! I love all the interesting facts she is able to dig up, but my favorite part of her books is the variety of photographs she's found of her subjects. Seeing animals in their natural habitats at work and play really makes the book come alive. This book about elephants first talks about the three different species—yes, three!—of elephants, two African ones (bush and forest) and an Indian one. All are endangered, unfortunately. The bulk of the book is a large section of elephant facts. Did you know the elephant is the only mammal that cannot jump? That elephant pregnancies last nearly 2 years and the baby can way up to 165 pounds (thank goodness twins are rare!!)? That an elephant skin is one inch thick? Though they are large… that their hearts beat at an average rate of 27 beats/minute (not a sustainable rate compatible with human life!)? After the fact section is a brief chapter on how elephants are endangered by climate change and human interference (poaching and expansion into their territory. A 20-question quiz and word search follow this. The book’s photographs and facts are so interesting that this book is enjoyable for a parent or caregiver to share with a child who loves animals in general or elephants in particular.

  • Did you ever notice an elephant using one tusk more than the other? Just like some of us prefer using our left hand and some the right, elephants have a favorite tusk!
  • Picture a bathtub full of water. Can you imagine drinking all of it? Well, an elephant can! They drink up to 80 gallons in just one day.
  • In Thailand, people love elephants so much that they made it their national animal. How cool is that?
  • You might find it hard to carry a heavy school bag, but an elephant’s single tooth can weigh as much as three kilograms! That’s like holding three big bottles of soda!

Where Do Elephants Call Home?

Elephants aren’t just found in zoos; they have homes in the wild too. There are lush forests, vast grasslands, and even some deserts where you can find these magnificent creatures. In this book, you’ll travel to these distant places, learning about the different types of homes elephants love.

Elephants: More Than Just a Pretty Face

While it’s a joy to learn about how elephants look and where they live, there’s more to the story. Elephants play a big role in nature. They help plants grow and keep the environment healthy.
