She is the Queen. The Matriarch. She leads her daughters and their daughters.
Set deep in the wilds of Africa, we follow the a small family of elephants as they travel throughout their territory.
As they wander, we learn how elephants survive and thrive as a family – with the mother matriarch leading her sisters, daughters and granddaughters.
There is almost a duo storyline – one that is simple and tells a short story about the elephants and what they are doing.
The second provides interesting facts about the different activities – like how they find watering holes during dry seasons or how baby elephants play.
Overall, I quite liked this book. It was short, sweet and absolutely adorable.
I particularly liked the illustrations. With picture books, absolutely everything hangs on the illustrations.
And allow me to assure you – they do not disappoint! I am so impressed by the level of detail included and the expressions on the animal’s faces.
Truly a delight!
With many thanks to Familius and June Smalls for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review
