“The Elephants Come Home ~ A True Story of Seven Elephants, Two People, and One Extraordinary Friendship” was written by Kim Tomsic and illustrated by Hadley Hooper. “One day in 1999, Lawrence Anthony and Françoise Malby hear that a herd of wild African elephants need a new home. They welcome the elephants to their wildlife sanctuary—Thula Thula—with open arms. But the elephants are much less sure they want to stay. How will Lawrence prove to them that they are safe and loved? What follows is a gorgeously illustrated real-life story of a friendship . . . and the story of the miraculous way that love given freely will return—greater and more wonderful than it began.” This is Storytime Saturdays Episode #92 with Children’s Author & Librarian, Phoebe Fox.
