This was one book that just caught my eye since of the fact that it uses a herd animal who is known for its matriarchal figurehead and one of the easier to tell grandmothers out there. And that is where my first complaint on this book comes from since the book is suppose to be a celebration of grandparents but with elephants there are no grandfathers who play a role so this would be a better celebration of the role of grandmothers in our lives. Furthermore as much as the author caught the capers [...]

This great Maine author weaves facts into a narrative of an elephant family finding water. The young elephant gets distracted several times, but then stops to listen for his/her Bibi's rumble,I like that the author gave the reader a few introductory facts with Swahili words that give the reader confidence so they can enjoy the story more. A longer "Author's Notes" at the end provide a bit more information.Black letters against white or yellow-toned pages of the dry land and white letters contras [...]

A young elephant loves his African home and is easily distracted by the beauty around him. Unfortunately, his distractions frequently lead to him becoming separated from his family. The calf is smart enough to know that his bibi, grandmother, will always remember him and come to find him. The illustrations are nicely done, but the real strength of this picture book is the relationship between the young elephant and his grandmother, the leader of the family herd. The story will make a reassuring [...]

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a beautifully illustrated story. I love its rhythm (without having rhyme). Tembo is an elephant little ones will relate to - and they'll also celebrate Tembo's love for her mother, aunt, and grandmother.Pros: An adorable baby elephant and beautiful illustrations will draw readers of all ages to this heartwarming story.To read our full review, go to The Reading Tub®.

Age: Toddler-KindergartenFamily: Grandmother and grandchildAnimals: ElephantsA little elephant keeps walking off to his curiosity's delight but also keeps getting lost. Good thing several family members nudge him along, tempting him with the prospects of what Bibi is looking for. Although the call of Bibi is loud, it is never the thing that actually brings the baby elephant back to the herd and it feels like a missed opportunity.

A loving, poetic, Swahili tale of how a meandering, thirsty baby elephant is watched over by her female herd, especially her Bibi, grandmother, who remembers where the water is so they all may drink again. Large format, nonfiction note at end, repetitive part that encourages kids to join in are all pluses. I read it a couple of times and stumbled over the rhythm of words in a few places and I craved more variety in the illustrations.

Tembo the young elephant is always getting distracted as she is traveling with her herd to the place her Bibi--her grandmother--is leading. Thank goodness her mother, aunties, and cousins are faithful to take care of her along the way. One day Tembo will be the Bibi who always remembers, but not for a long time--she has a lot of growing up to do.Wohnoutka's illustrations are endearing, and this would fit nicely into a lower-elementary study of elephants.

This is a cute little story about a young elephant's experience as her familial herd treks to a watering hole. I appreciated the author's note at the end, which gave a little more information about the habits of elephants. Be forewarned, though, the language is a bit poetic- "searching for wet" rather than looking for water, for example. My highly literal, proper, do-it-right-or-not-at-all type of child was decidedly irritated by this.

The story isn't too compelling, but the illustrations are really exceptional. I'm not sure why they had to slap an ugly sticker on the cover advertising that the book was a "celebration of grandparents"--it smacks of desperation to have the book noticed.

Officially I hate animal books, but a) very few picturebooks about African children are actually about human children, so I have to go with animals coded as African, and b) elephants are matriarchal and cool, so.

Story is meandering and confusing, especially for the young target audience. I also find it difficult to believe, as I know that elephants stay VERY close to their mothers for the first few years. Maybe I do watch and read too many animal-related things

There are some rhymes that don't seem to have a reason. Although this is a tale that emphasizes family, I wasn't thrilled or particularly moved.

Beautifully illustrated and well written to inform and entertain. What more could we ask for in a children's book.

I'm too lazy to look it up right now, but I think there are at least TWO other picture books about baby elephants getting lost/looking for their grown up.
