Anju, an elephant, is being moved again, coaxed by her mahout (caretaker) into a trailer.

Anju, an elephant, is being moved again, coaxed by her mahout (caretaker) into a trailer. Told in flashback, the story paints Anju’s memories-of happy days in Sumatra; of too many years performing circus tricks (perching on a stool, bedecked with a silly hat); and of life in zoos. I have read many amazing picture books, but few touch my heart the way When Anju Loved Being an Elephant by Wendy Henrichs did. Through the story of Anju, we learn how an elephant might feel who remembers being free and being surrounded by her friends and family, but now is alone.

My 6 y.o.'s review of this book: I really loved this book. I liked when Anju snuggled as a baby. I laughed at Anju in a circus hat. I was surprised when the rest of the herd came to Anju and one snuggled with her at the end of the book. I learned that elephants live a long time.

Here's my review: This is an enjoyable book to read to your children. The prose is lyrical and tells about the typical life of captive elephants. The ending of this book is satisfying, not only to the reader, but also to the main character. The author lists "elephant facts" at the end of the book as well as ways the readers can help elephants. The illustrations are beautiful and contribute to Anju's story. Kids will enjoying spotting the bunnies, spider, and birds sprinkled throughout the pages.

An excellent book for younger children to reconsider elephant captivity.
  • FreandlyMan
Beautiful book! There are a few very large words but other than that it talks about the cruelty and loneliness and the sad life elephants live and experience in captivity without getting too graphic.
  • Xtani
Beautiful story and stunning illustrations! We need to save the elephants before they go extinct :(
  • Ginaun

  • Carrot
What a great story… One of the books the kids pick out to read over and over again and one I don’t mind reading over and over again!

Henrichs has a knack for lyrical prose and wonderful pacing. While fiction, the story aligns with many similar tales of how truly brilliant elephants are by nature. As a young elephant, Anju lumbers happily in her familiy's jungle region. One day that changes. Anju is stolen and sold to a circus, and the years pass. Now ready for retirement, a kind caretaker knows just what Anju needs. This peaceful narrative has a happy ending, beautiful illustrations, and a hopeful message. And, like an elephant, you'll remember this story long after it's read.
I have read many amazing picture books, but few touch my heart the way When Anju Loved Being an Elephant by Wendy Henrichs did. Through the story of Anju, we learn how an elephant might feel who remembers being free and being surrounded by her friends and family, but now is alone. This touching tale has a happy ending as Anju is transported to an elephant preserve and meets her long-lost friend. Based on true incidents of elephant friendships that spanned decades, the story of Anju is written in lyrical and poetic prose that captures the rhythms of the train as Anju travels across the country to her new home, the tender impulses of her lonely heart, and the joy of friendship. With lovely original art, this is a fabulous gift for any animal-loving child (or parent!).
