Where’s The Elephant?

where-s-the-elephant-Throughout this nearly wordless picture book, readers are encouraged to find an elephant, a parrot, and a snake in their habitat. The double page spreads created through a collage of acrylic and pencil show a beautiful forest being overtaken through deforestation. Slowly, the forest habitat is taken away and the animals must try to find a way out of the concrete jungle that is now surrounding them. This story will start conversations with young readers about the importance of taking care of our forests so that animals may stay in their natural habitats. amo
