Elephants! Look and Learn

Elephants! Learn About Elephants and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Elephants) - Becky Wolff

2 stars

I LOVE elephants.  I love how they are matriarchal. I love how they love each other. They are incredibly smart. This “book” is not. Oy.  The pictures of the elephants are small and hard to see.  Most are rather boring. There is one of a close up of a trunk which i liked, but it too was small. This look and learn repeats a few facts as well. Overall I knew most of the stuff in it, but really it was another half assed attempt at a book.  One quote that irritates me: :” Elephants have large, thin ears.” You don’t say? Even for a kids book, this is rather lame. Seriously, did the author even try??
