Tarra and Bella: The Elephant and Dog Who Became Best Friends

December 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Books


Did you catch the CBS clip a while back about the elephant and the stray dog who became best friends?  Well, the lovely Carol Buckley, founder of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, has written a children’s book that features her photos of that unlikely pair of best buds.  The result is heartwarming.

Kiddo loves this book, and I do too.  It’s such a good story that I don’t mind reading it over and over again.  It also gives us a good opportunity to talk about why we don’t go to the circus or visit elephant exhibits at zoos.  I’m sure Tarra the elephant was adorable on roller skates during her performing days, but I’m even more certain that she’s far happier roaming a sanctuary with her friends.

Ages 4-8.
