Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Trunk swinging and legs splashing, a little elephant gambols about in this ebullient tale. Ford's brief captions-"A big splash." "Under I go." "Can you see me?" "Here I am."- punctuate Hoban's exceptional full-color photographs. Like a human baby after a period of exhausting play, this youngster goes looking for its mother and finds her waiting in the wings. A childlike sense of joy and exuberance come through in this charming picture book with enormous appeal.

From Booklist

Ages 2-5. Told from the point of view of an infant elephant, this simple story documents the zoo baby's adventures of going into and getting out of the pool in its cage with mother close by. The large-print text of one short sentence or phrase per page, underneath spectacular color photos, makes this a perfect choice for reading one-on-one or with a small group. Wee ones will enjoy the antics of the small elephant. They can clearly see the wrinkles on its skin and the long hairs on its back. The front cover shows the faces of the pachyderms, while the back cover sports the tail ends. Even the title page includes lettering made from elephant-hide photos. A neatly designed package. This volume is a guaranteed hit for preschoolers everywhere Deborah Abbott
