ELEPHANTS contains the truth people may not know about elephants. There are facts about how they live, eat, and so much more. There's also a glossary in the back of the book just in case the reader is unfamiliar with a word, like tusks (perfect for children).

There are many different types of elephants, which I never realized. ELEPHANTS also discusses how the elephant population is decreasing. This is a sad, but a true thing and that people need to contribute if they're going to remain safe.

There are so many facts that I had no idea about. Their tusks are actually their incisor teeth and they don't drink out of their trunks. I also love the pictures of different elephants and that there is information on the woolly mammoths as well.

Final Verdict: This is the perfect book for fans of elephants and animals.
