Read This!: SHE LEADS: THE ELEPHANT MATRIARCH by June Smalls

She Leads: The Elephant MatriarchShe Leads: The Elephant Matriarch by June Smalls
Summary: She is the Queen. The matriarch.
She leads her daughters and their daughters.

Text and illustrations follow the journey of an elephant matriarch as she leads her family through the wilds of Africa. With facts about African elephants on every spread and a message that will encourage girls to be the trailblazers of their generation.

A quietly powerful book about real girl power in the animal kingdom. She Leads manages to be both straightforward and moving, fact-filled and lyrical, always firmly grounded in the power, nurturing strength, and beauty of the elephant matriarch and her legacy to those who will follow. Yumi Shimokawara’s naturalistic illustrations bring the queen and her society to life, while June Small’s main text offers the elegance of poetry, filled out by more information in the sidebars on each page. Ideal for storytime, the classroom, or bedtime reading.

SHE LEADS: THE ELEPHANT MATRIARCH is out now.
