      Awards Won- NoneGenre- fictions Illustrations- The animals that are in the zoo all have the same sad and lonely expression. There is a great picture where it shows the animals in Africa and the animals in the zoo. In this picture you can see such a huge difference in life, and lack of life. My views- I originally picked this book off the shelf because elephants are my favorite animals. Then I started to look at the book and saw that there was a sad element to it, but as all children's books do, [...]

      Don't know what it is about this book - but rarely have I come across such a sense of longing in a book for preschoolers. A few of the drawings made my heart soar, and the phrasing is unusual. It doesn't have an American feeling at all, but feels like some very simple poetry translated from another story. It's matter of fact and simple in wording, but there is strength in what's not said. My 28 month old loves this one and asks for it daily - I'll have to buy a copy as we borrow it from the libr [...]

      One of the most aching children's books I have ever read. My eldest daughter had me read it to her nightly for months on end. It reads like a poem, with moody illustrations to match the desire that drives this story. Its about friendship, love, and a determination to take a giant leap to be with one you miss. In this way it is a coming of age story, and a story if liberation and the pursuit of happiness. I recommend you read it slowly, airily, as a poem, to your child.

      The story and the art are both so sweet and so poignant.

      This may be one of my all-time favorite picture books for girls (or boys). It is beautifully paced and illustrated and makes me all fluttery every time I read it.

      My daughter loves elephants and this is one of her favorite books. She's two and I can't describe how fun it is to hear her say elephant.
