"I absolutely loved this book! I got emotional, as we lost my grandparents recently, and they were elephant lovers! The simple illustrations really emoted what needed to be there instead of distracting from the message. The language was simple but still poignant. What a great lesson in grief. Bravo, Diana! The purple also is the perfect background color for the grey elephants!" ~ Chelsea Gouin.; Special Education Teacher and Author
