Eye on the Wild - Elephants by Suzi Esterhaus (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)

Elephants (Eye on the Wild Series)

Written and Illustrated by
Suzi Esterhaus

Published by Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Here's a fantastic photographic book series by acclaimed wildlife photographer Suzi Esterhaus, who has trained her lens on one of the most fascinating animal species on our planet. In "Eye on the Wild - Elephants", Suzi expertly details the lives of a pack of elephants from the tiniest babies up to the most regal and rumbustious adults. All aspects of elephant life are explored as we gain a fascinating insight into the species, and how their world is changing rapidly amidst the constant threat of territorial encroachment by man, hunting and other dangers.

Told largely as a story of one young elephant growing up from calf to adulthood, it's a fact-filled book full of Suzi's trademark glorious photography. A really brilliant approach to engaging kids with finding out more about their favourite animal species.

Follow the series and check out more books by Suzi on the Frances Lincoln website.

Charlotte's best bit: Utterly lovely photos of the tiny baby elephants at play! Awww!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A fantastic range of books for children just beginning to find out about the various animal species on our planet.
