My Bibi Always Remembers

by Toni Buzzeo
illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka
Hyperion Books for Children, 2014.
ISBN 978-1423183853


Reviews:
Little Tembo, a baby elephant, is thirsty and her herd cannot find any water. But Bibi, the matriarch, "remembers the way to wet." As Bibi leads them across the parched savannah, Tembo happily follows, every now and then getting distracted by her own memories of games she loves to play. With touching family moments interspersed between Tembo's playful actions, this tribute to grandmothers will make a perfect read-aloud.
"Buzzeo’s lyrical text begs to be performed, and listeners will enjoy chanting the refrain: “When Bibi calls, / everyone comes-- / one by one. / Step-step. / Searching for wet.” Wohnoutka’s appealing artwork conveys the details of elephant behavior and reassures listeners that Tembo is well protected." —Kay Weisman, Booklist

"Several phrases are repeated multiple times, creating a sense of continuity and rhythm along with reassurance that all will be well. Wohnoutka’s lovely illustrations, in tans, purples and grays, convey the vastness of the setting, along with accurate depictions of the elephants and the other watchful animals. A gentle, loving picture of interaction among generations." —Kirkus
"Wohnoutka's full-bleed, full-spread illustrations show an expansive landscape filled with beauty but with hints of danger. An author's note gives brief information about African elephants. With its catchy rhythm and finely crafted text and art, this book is perfect for group sharing." —Megan Egbert, School Library Journal
