Gail Gibbons is noted to be a top author in non-fiction children's books and I can understand why. Elephants of Africa is edifying yet friendly to a child. The type font is large and bold---easy to read. The pictures in watercolor are large and close up, each page is filled with glorious elephants. The information given in the book about elephants would be excellent not only for home reading but for use in school. Elephants of Africa gives information about what they eat, where they live, maps and illustrations are given.
I am thinking of purchasing this book I loved it so much!
