I teach in two schools.
One is in the city.
The other is in the jungle.
Some of my students have hands.
Others have trunks.

Elephants live in Asia. They eat three hundred pounds of food a day. They spray water out of their trunks. Even so, they are a lot like you. They like to eat cookies and hang out with their friends. They even like to paint pictures.
In this true story you'll learn about an amazing class of elephants that are taught to become artists by an amazing teacher.

About the Author:

Katya Arnold was born in Moscow and became an artist at age twelve. She has written and illustrated many books for children, including Baba Yaga: A Russian Folktale and Me Too!: Two Small Stories About Small Animals. She has also written two nonfiction books, Let's Find It!: My First Nature Guide and Katya's Book of Mushrooms, drawing on her passion for the natural world.
When she is not writing and illustrating, Ms. Arnold teaches art to children at Saint Ann's School in Brooklyn and to elephants in Thailand through the Asian Elephant Art and Conservation Project, an organization founded by her husband, the artist Alex Melamid. She lives in New York City with her family.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3–When Thailand recently began to conserve trees that previously would have been harvested, domesticated elephants lost their jobs hauling lumber. Subsequently, many died of neglect because they could no longer earn their keep. This book highlights an unusual project implemented by the author. In simple text, she explains that she teaches art in two schools, one urban and one in the jungle, and that some of her students have hands. Others have trunks. Then tells how she trains elephants to paint and compares the work of her human and elephant pupils. The spare narrative is easy to understand and reads like a picture book. Additional facts about the elephants and techniques are provided in boxed sections. This title demonstrates animal behavior in a similar style to Ron Hirschi's Dance with Me (Penguin, 1995) and Bert Kitchen's Somewhere Today (Candlewick, 1992; both o.p.). Arnold's amusing and colorful photographs–of elephants and children at work–will have readers laughing as they view them side-by-side. This fun-to-share offering would make a creative segue into a discussion about the plight of endangered species. An author's note provides information about the project and explains that the paintings are sold under the auspices of the Asian Elephant Art and Conservation Project to obtain revenue that can support the efforts to save these wonderful creatures.–Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma Library, CA
