I'm so happy to be a reviewer for Multicultural Children's Book Day 2019! Thank you to author Sylvia M. Medina for sending me a review copy of MOLELO THE FIRE ELEPHANT (co-written with Krista Hill, illustrated by Morgan Spicer, GreenKidsClub Publishers, 2018).
This is a beautiful and hopeful book focusing on animal conservation and protection. The book is part of a series - Baby Animal Environmental Heroes - about baby animals and their survival. Medina is the founder of Green Kids Club, Inc., which helps children understand and care about their environment and the world. www.GreenKidsClub.com.
The back matter, including an author's note, provides photos of the real Molelo, as well as information about African elephant conservation.
The book itself features a heartwarming story about survival and friendship. The illustrations perfectly complement the text. Children and adults who read this book will want to get involved in helping to protect animals around the world.
Kudos to the team working on this important series and initiative. To learn more about Elephants Without Borders, visit www.ElephantsWithoutBorders.org.
