Researcher Caitlin O’Connell provides information about elephants in the wild through her chronicle of the early days of young elephant Liza, born in Namibia. O’Connell and Timothy Rodwell’s arresting color photographs of Liza are paired with an engaging, accessible narrative offering up plenty of facts about elephants like baby Liza and the extended family that cares for her, as well as the dangers they face in the twenty-first century, as land and resources grow more scarce. A two-page “Did you know?” section at volume’s end provides a few additional facts about elephants. (Ages 7–10)
