Katharine McEwen’s bio

Do Baby Elephants Suck Their Trunks?
Amazing Ways Animals Are Just Like Us

author: Ben Lerwill
illustrator: Katharine McEwen

A perfect read-aloud, this book encourages the youngest of readers to think about what makes them unique while also learning about ways in which they might be similar to babies in the animal kingdom—from giraffes wobbling as they walk to puppies losing their baby teeth. Each spread is fully illustrated with heartwarming collage artwork that depicts the love between parent and child across species.

"This appealing book looks at what baby animals have in common with young children. . . . Collage illustrations create a warm, inviting look." —Booklist
