Based on real events, this exquisite and inspirational picture book offers a wonderful insight into animal behaviour
It is nighttime, and a herd of elephants are on the move. An impala is lying in the darkness, watching a tortoise stumble towards the water. Hatchling turtles slip into the pool while crocodiles sleep. A pack of wild dogs trot by. When the tortoise slips, a surprising and remarkable chain of events begins to unfold. Perfect for classroom discussion, this story raises moral and philosophical issues as well as being a great teaching aid for science and nature topics.
