How to Be an Elephant: Growing Up in the African Wild by Katherine Roy; illustrated by Katherine Roy. 2017. Watercolors. Published by Roaring Brook Press.
Brief summary: An infant elephant is born into a loving herd that raises her to adulthood teaching all of the skills an elephant must learn to live.
Comments: Although my description is short, the book is actually quite detailed and covered many facts about elephants I did not know about earlier. The diagrams help explain how the elephant smells, hears, communicates and other skills needed to be an elephant. The author/illustrator went to Kenya to research elephants and her love of them is felt in the beautiful illustrations. This book is a must for all elephant lovers.
