Once Upon an Elephant
Once Upon an Elephant shows the many ways elephants help the animals living in the Savannah. When the rivers run dry, the elephants can dig with their tusks to reach the water, and the animals can drink. When trees grow in the grassland, the elephants eat the saplings, keeping open fields for the animals. When elephants eat seeds, they come out in their dung, which helps those plants grow. Elephants’ wide paths can help wildfire from spreading through the grassland. Someday, elephants might go extinct, and they won’t be around to help the Savannah.
I loved Once Upon an Elephant because it taught me a lot about how elephants help the other animals around them. The illustrations were beautiful, and made me want to look at the pictures over and over again. I like how the author used Once Upon an Elephant like “once upon a time.” I hope people learn more about elephants and help them from becoming extinct. I liked the extra pages at the back of the book which taught more about elephants, ecosystems, and the seasons in a tropical habitat.
