A beautiful picture book, bought for Kelsey when she was little and loved elephants. I would find all sorts of elephant books and read them to her. She would be rapt.

That is, she loved them until she met her first one, during a preschool field trip. They were a lot bigger than she expected. That was the end of the elephants craze.
