Where’s the Elephant? by Barroux

As the title suggests, Where’s the Elephant? opens with an invitation to look for an elephant, a snake and a parrot that have been cleverly hidden in the bright, inviting jungle spreads.

But as the pages progress, what seemed to be at first glance an ostensibly straightforward book, slowly reveals its true depth, as well as the powerful environmental message that has been camouflaged under the guise of a simple search-and-find book — and which packs a bigger punch than some of the more didactic titles around.

The beauty of this book is that since it’s almost wordless, even little children will be able to grasp the gravity of the message intuitively, thanks to the simple yet heartbreaking and utterly unforgettable imagery.

  1. Can I just say I love your book recommendations? I can go to the library with a mission instead of wondering what will be good, although of course I sometimes find other books along the way. The only problem is we always end up borrowing way too many books! Haha!
