The Book & Diorama Series--an innovative children's book program with the world-famous American Museum of Natural History: each title is a collectible treasure box that fits in the hand--and fills an entire imagination. Three million visitors a year visit the American Museum of Natural History, and many--if not all--are drawn to the Museum's renowned life-size dioramas. And now, capturing their magical realism, comes a series of dazzling book and diorama sets. Focusing on an individual animal and re-creating its environment, each title features two custom-sculpted vinyl animals--a mother and baby, created by the Museum's own sculptor--set against a color backdrop in a clear display case. Nestled into a sleeve on the reverse is a 64-page full-color book packed with science and discovery. The African elephant, the most mysterious and intriguing animal on the savanna, has its story told in The African Elephant. Ellen Weiss has written over 60 books for children of all ages, winning three Children's Choice awards. A collectible gift for kids ages 6-9.
