From the Series My First Animal Library
In Elephants, early readers will learn how elephants cool off, find food, and survive in the wild. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage young readers as they discover what elephants do at a watering hole.
A labeled diagram helps readers identify an elephant’s body parts, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about elephants online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Elephants also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.
Elephants is part of Jump!’s My First Animal Library series.

These titles all have boldly colored page layouts. Full-page photographs draw readers in and show detailed parts of the title animals, their predators, food, eggs/babies, and habitat. Most page spreads consist of controlled vocabulary, emergent reading text. Each book begins with information about the animal’s activity at night followed by “Parts of the Body,” “Picture Glossary,” and “To Learn More.” The latter feature provides a safe, relevant site for beginning web searchers. Pages that highlight terms are separated in a bright contrasting text box, making a strong visual impact. This series is recommended for libraries in need of more primary nonfiction titles.
