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.
