Award-winning author and illustrator Katherine Roy joins us at Books Inc. in Mountain View for a Book Launch celebrating her imaginative new non-fiction book for kids, How to Be an Elephant. (Ages 7+)

Africa is not an easy place to live, even for the enormous elephants that call it home. Foraging for food and water and fighting off predators are only a few of the many skills that these giants must acquire as part of the long learning process that begins immediately after birth. Thankfully, they have a large familial network in place to teach them how to wash and drink and whiffle and roar--everything they need to know about how to be an elephant.

How to Be an Elephant delves into the intricate family dynamics at play in a typical African herd. Emphasizing the latest available research with lush watercolor illustrations and detailed diagrams, Roy vividly portrays the life and development of an elephant from an uncertain 220-pound newborn into a majestic, 7,000-pound matriarch. As informative as it is beautiful, this unique portrait of an elephant's life will captivate young explorers and their parents alike.
