A charming and exuberant nonfiction picture book about a young elephant's day on the savanna with her herd.

If you were an elephant, you'd be the biggest animal who lives on the land. You'd have ears big as tent flaps, skin thick as blankets. You'd turn the next page with your trunk, not your hand.

Chock-full of amazing facts, this joyful read aloud invites readers to follow in the (enormous) footsteps of one of the world's most remarkable creatures--from munching on bushes and branches all day, to splashing around in water holes and mud baths, to finally curling up with the herd in a pool of moonlight. Kids will love every moment of this playful introduction to the daily sights, sounds, and activities of a young elephant in the wild.
