About the Author:

Arthur Dorros views being a writer like being a traveling detective. He finds ideas all around. He learned Spanish while living in Latin America, and many of his stories, such as Abuelo, grow from those experiences. Arthur is the author of many books for children, including Julio's Magic, a CLASP Américas Award Commended Title; Papá and Me, a Pura Belpré Honor Book; and the popular Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book Ant Cities. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-This entry in the popular, easy-to-read series offers an excellent overview of the elephant's habits and life cycle. The concise yet informative text focuses on African elephant families, but mentions Asian species. Accurate watercolors (many of which are full page) supplement the information. Brief captions clarify some of the illustrations. L. Martin's Elephants (Rourke, 1988) and Elsa Posell's Elephants (Childrens, 1982) provide similar information in slightly different formats. A list of addresses for organizations dedicated to protecting this endangered species is provided.
