Here's my review: This is an enjoyable book to read to your children. The prose is lyrical and tells about the typical life of captive elephants. The ending of this book is satisfying, not only to the reader, but also to the main character. The author lists "elephant facts" at the end of the book as well as ways the readers can help elephants. The illustrations are beautiful and contribute to Anju's story. Kids will enjoying spotting the bunnies, spider, and birds sprinkled throughout the pages.
