    1. Desert Elephants by Cowcher Helen Genre: nonfiction Reading level: 1-3 grade Format: good The books Desert elephants is about Elephants that live in Africa.

    2. Summary: This is a picture book about the travels taken by a group of Elephants known as the Desert Elephants. This particular group are named as such because they live on the edge of the Sahara Desert. This group of elephants makes over a 300 mile journey during the dry season to find water going through a opening in the mountains known as the Elephants Doorway.Main Characters:The Elephants.I thought this was just a so so book. The story didn't really follow a good line and they author tried to [...]

    3. Loved that this book included a map and talked a bout the migration of African Elephants, but I wish the author had gone into greater detail about their journey. As it was, I was a little confused about the process. The storyline didn't seem to follow the cyclical path laid out on the endpaper maps. I enjoyed reading about the native people and the adaptations of the animals, though, and the illustrations were incredible.

    4. From the endpapers which depict the longest migration route of any elephant in the world, to the illustrations, text, and author's notes, the reader comes to understand and appreciate the environmental relationship between the people and the elephants.

    5. A story book telling the story of the 300 mile circular route the elephants take every year to follow the rains and water. Villages, elephant rangers and people work together to make sure the elephants are safe and the thousands-years-old path is kept clear for the elephants.

    6. Informative and inspiring story about the peaceful coexistence between elephants and local people. More human-animal relationships of this kind are needed in the world!

    7. Would definitely share this when discussing elephant migration/climate but not an amazing title. Interesting just not amazing.

    8. I thought this book was interesting because it showed what an animal would do and how far they would travel in search of something to survive. and i loved the art work in the book.
