Book: Lai-Lai The Baby Elephant
Author: Shekar Dattatri , Photographer: Shekar Dattatri
A beautiful English-Hindi bilingual book that explores the world of wild elephants through stunning photographs and informative text in English and in Hindi, with lovable elephant cartoons.
Activity: Thrissur Pooram Elephant
We explore the close relationships that humans and elephants share in India, how elephants are losing their habitat yet they form such an important part of cultural celebrations across religions. We make a beautiful decorated elephant like the ones we see in the Thrissur Pooram festival in Kerala, India.
What I loved most about this book is that in just two photographs, it makes young minds feel the trouble encountered by elephants due to deforestation. For elephants to survive in the wild, there should be forests left for them and it's our responsibility to ensure that they are conserved.
