Kindergarten-Grade 3—Dedicated to "the voiceless," this simple book with minimal text and pictures limns the lifelong friendship between an elephant and a tree. At the beginning, "The tree and the elephant were best of friends, both were young and both were small." Gradually they grow—the mature elephant tells the tree of his wanderings and the tree becomes taller than all the others in the forest and tells his friend about the world outside their home. Then "progress" comes: the elephant is captured and the tree is cut down to make the elephant's saddle. Still together, they live their days reminding one another of their past when both were free. The artistic chalklike line drawings in lime green are set against black pages with lime green text until the disaster strikes. Then the text and the changes that happen to the two friends are drawn in white. This is a poetic and sad story, bemoaning the loss of habitat and the sorrow of captivity in a direct and simple way that children can comprehend. The book makes for a stunning presentation, but will work best when shared with an adult.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
