    1. Twin Text #1: Natumi Takes the Lead & The Story of BabarNatumi Takes the Lead is a nonfiction Biography book because the book follows the life of Natumi, an elephant and it talks about her life as an orphan. Natumi lived with her mother’s heard in central Kenya. One day the heard wandered too close to a farm where shots were shot and most elephants died. Natumi was rescued by people who ran an orphanage for baby elephants. There Natumi met other orphans and they became each other’s new f [...]


    2. A true story about Natumi, a shy and often afraid orphan elephant and how she grew up to become a leader. When Natumi was just a few weeks old hunters murdered her mother. Upon hearing the shots, Natumi and her herd scatter with Natumi running in the opposite direction of the heard. Fortunately, Natumi was rescued by a kind farmer who took her to an elephant orphanage where she thrived. Natumi and seven other orphans formed a family. It was fascinating to learn how Natumi overcame her fear and b [...]


    3. This is a lovely book about the quiet, brave Natumi and how she and her fellow elephants are rescued and taught to live in the wild. I found the facts about African Elephants and the people who devote their work to helping animals in need interesting. The photographs are adorable. Great for: Kindergarten-3rd GradeTeaches: scientific facts about elephants, African geography, being mindful of wildlife and environment


    4. I loved this sweet little story about the orphan elephant, Natumi. It makes me feel better about the world knowing there are people who dedicate their time to helping poor little orphan elephants and giving them as good a life as possible. Great early reader for children. Heartwarming story.


    5. A very cute story with fantastic photography. My daughter, who loves all animals, was very excited to get this and she has read it a couple of times already.


    6. Natumi the elephant was orphaned when her family was slain by poachers. Luckily, she was taken in by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and her emotional wounds began to heal when more orphans arrived. A moving story of the strength we can gain from others, regardless of species. I'd highly recommend following the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and giving to their extraordinary cause.


    7. The true story of Natumi a baby elephant, that is saved by a kind farmer, begins when her parents and other elephants are shot leaving only one little elephant Natumi alone by herself. Because the photographer Gerry Ellis took pictures of her as she matured, it is rewarding to be able to visualize exactly how she matures in an orphanage with seven other elephants, that have suffered a similar fates in losing their parents. As they live together they begin to depend on one another forming a famil [...]



    8. Natumi, a baby elephant, and her family were enjoying the water hole in the Savanna when danger struck. Shots were fired and Natumi lost her mother. She ran until she was rescued by a farmer. She was taken to an orphanage where other baby elephants became her new family. Natumi and the others played in puddles and chased each other around. Like many youngster’s bedtime was a chore for the caretakers but the elephants were soon settled down with handmade blankets. As they grew Natumi seemed to [...]



    9. Full review with teaching tools: unleashingreaders/?p=1In addition to being a story that teaches about elephants, Natumi’s story is one that will warm readers’ hearts. Her story is sad yet inspiring, heart breaking yet beautiful, and the reader gets to be there every step of the way. Gery Ellis’s photographs allow the reader to be right in the story and helps move this book past just a normal informational nonfiction text to literary nonfiction thus allowing it to cross boundaries in the c [...]


    10. This one will be a big hit for kids ages (about) 4-8 who love animals. The story doesn't dwell on the upsetting death of Natumi's mother and there are a ton of great baby elephant pictures. (Who doesn't love baby elephants, right?) Natumi Takes the Lead even has a little section at the back with a map of where African elephants live, some elephant facts, and resources for more places to learn about elephants. Recommending (next year) for a nonfiction selection for the 2019 Magnolia Children's Ch [...]


    11. So I have a soft spot in my heart for elephants, and this book literally made me tear up. I know it's just a children's book but it's so sweet!Little orphan Natumi learns to be a leader in her herd and grows up with her new family. UGGH RIGHT IN THE FEELS.This is a nice, gentle book suitable for young children - the story doesn't focus on poaching or dead elephant parents, but more on how Natumi and her new family move on with their lives and are released into the wild.Love love love.


    12. A super, simple non-fiction book about an orphaned elephant. Lots of anthropomorphism but cute intended, I assume.


    13. Animal lovers are going to be big fans of this nonfiction title. There are a lot of sweet pictures of adorable baby elephants and some great facts about the world's largest land mammal in addition to *little* Natumi's story. Highly recommended.
