Little Elephant holds her mothers's tails as they explore their world. Along the way, Little Elephant asks if she can jump, climb the acacia, or swim. Her mother offers alternatives and lets Little Elephant explore the world. The ending is especially encouraging -- the Mama elephant gives reassuring and hopeful words before the two head home.
A bit too sweet and simple for K-5 students. Preschool students will probably like this and get much more out of it. Also a good bedtime book!
