Where’s the Ele­phant? | Ages 3-6 Bar­roux (Can­dlewick Press)

Canadian Wildlife - - OUTDOORS -

Where’s the Ele­phant? is about as far as you can get from an info-heavy fact book — it’s al­most word­less. The sim­plic­ity is what lends this twist on a tra­di­tional seek-and-find book its weight. The reader is asked to find the ele­phant and its two an­i­mal friends. But as the colour­ful jun­gle they call home is de­for­ested and a city takes its place, the an­i­mals have less and less space on the page to hide. A hope­ful end­ing makes this a pow­er­ful read for the very young, with op­tions for dis­cus­sion with older chil­dren too. Its com­pan­ion Starfish, Where Are You? gives a sim­i­lar mes­sage about our oceans.
