Told in gentle rhyming verse, this beautiful non-fiction picture book follows the story of a herd of African elephants as they journey across the parched savannah in search for a water hole. The matriarch tells of all the sounds of the savannah, and how the landscape has changed over the years. Still, she remembers where to find water, just as her mother did before her.
Accompanying information pages at the end of the book include facts about African elephants, their family structure and migration patterns, as well as the challenges of climate change, habitat loss and illegal poaching, and what we as readers can do to help.
