Meet Daphne Sheldrick

About the book

This is the story of a girl who grew up to rescue baby elephants orphaned by cruel ivory poachers.

This is the story of a lady known as “Mother To Elephants.”



No doubt you’ve heard the saying, “Mother knows best!” But what if the baby is a six-hundred-pound elephant, and mother is of the two-legged kind? Would the saying still hold true? Mothering elephants is what Daphne Sheldrick did her entire life. As a young girl, she was put in charge of wounded or abandoned animals. As a grownup, Daphne and her dedicated team saved and nurtured countless elephants.


When a tiny, milk dependent calf arrived, Daphne’s determination would be tested. No one had ever hand-reared an elephant baby this young, but what Daphne learned with Aisha would be the key to saving future orphaned elephants. What’s more, she had the elephant-sized dream of returning them to the wild!


This is a non-fiction biography picture book for kids, filled with love, loss and determination. It is sure to inspire young budding conservationists and to make the perfect gift for elephant lovers everywhere!
