Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge - Desert Elephants
Desert elephants travel hundreds of miles through the deserts of Africa to find water. They've been doing this migration for thousands of years.
This book knocked my socks off. Helen Cowcher's illustrations are luscious and her palette captures the beauty of the desert. Her text is well researched, informational and insightful. It is a story of cooperation and conservation.
A wonderful book to add to your classroom library!
Take a peek inside Helen's book with this video.
