How this book might help: This book touches lightly on the themes of adoption, loss and integration.
A baby elephant is lost and alone in the forest, when a herd of buffaloes come along and take him into their fold ... what is he now, and elephant, or a buffalo? The little elephant decides to stay with the buffaloes as, despite their physical differences, he feels he belongs with them.
Things we liked about this book: We loved the bold retro-style woodcut illustrations. Our young reviewers enjoyed the story, especially the animal noises.
