10th March Birth of an Elephant

Today a new baby elephant was born at Taronga Park Zoo. This is a momentous event and tomorrow the children at school will be full of talk about it so I will need to get out elephant books. Last time an elephant baby was born they were besotted. Hopefully this one will thrive and they will have another calf to visit. We have a large number of both stories and factual books about elephants, but those that deal with the birth of elephants and baby elephants will be best. Among the display will be these books because each of them is a beautiful and factual depiction of elephant life:
Little Elephant Thunderfoot by Sally Grindley & John Butler
Bashi, Elephant Baby by Theresa Radcliffe & John Butler
Kidogo by Anik McGrory
Elephants by Steve Bloom
