Publisher Comments:

About the series: Each book in the Welcome to the World of Series introduces children to wildlife through color photographs, lively description and amazing facts.

Synopsis:

The Welcome to the World series has opened its borders and is exploring animals from around the world. With lively and informative text and color photographs, these books promise to deliver you to exotic lands--and you won't even have to leave your house! Elephants cry when they're sad and laugh when they're happy. They have greeting ceremonies for family and friends, and very long memories. An elelphant's trunk has over 100,000 muscle units, and is so heavy it's not uncommon to see an elephant resting its trunk on a tusk. These are just some of the facts you'll learn about African and Asian elephants in WELCOME TO THE WHOLE WORLD OF ELEPHANTS. Complete with full-color photographs, this book will teach you all you want to know about elephants.

Synopsis:

Elephants are very social creatures who live in herds. They have been observed to cry, laugh, and even hug each other. The elephant trunk contains 100,000 muscle units and is used to grasp and strip leaves from trees, drink water, spray themselves to cool down, smell their environment, and as a snorkel when crossing deep waters. Elephants are intelligent and sensitive animals who deserve a closer look.
