Charlotte, a girl who’s curious and kind, is chosen by a big blue elephant to banish the cruel poachers from the forest. In a daring and determined plan, they join forces with the clever, talkative Mr. Crow and the empathetic, self-sacrificing Miss Ash Tree. With bravery, teamwork, and a surprise ambush by a large flock of crows, they save her friend and savor their triumph! Charlie and the Elephant by Loretta Beacham is a story about a child who cares about other creatures, one who follows her feelings and goes the distance to make a difference. With lovely illustrations by Yvette Besner, it’s a book to be read and remembered.
