A Passion for Elephants: The Real Life Adventure of Field Scientist Cynthia Moss
This book is about elephants and Cynthia Moss. She is a real person. She rode horses when she was seven. She went to a school for horseback riding. She got a letter from a friend in Africa. She went to Africa and got a job taking care of elephants. She could tell them apart by their ears and tusks. (Wart Ear!) Elephants trumpet to say “Hi!” The grandmothers remember where the water is. People kill elephants for their tusks. They are made out of ivory. (I don’t like the poachers.) Cynthia gives speeches, saying, “No more ivory.” She has studied two thousand elephants.
I liked the book. I learned you can tell elephants from their tusks. This book is good for kids five and up. Kids should show parents this book right before they buy those tusks. Babies would like it until the killing parts. I’m okay with reading this book myself. There are other animals in the pictures. The pictures are okay. The elephants are not realistic. I like the birds. I’d like to go to Amboseli National Park. I like how the book says Cynthia is “not afraid of BIG things.”
