LOUIE THE MIRACLE ELEPHANT, by Grandma Marian - This book was published by the world-renowned Toledo Zoo. It is basically a kids version of the TRUE STORY of the birth of an elephant at the zoo. The name Louie was selected from hundreds of ideas contributed by zoo patrons and people from the community. For some reason it comes with a warning about realistic depiction of the reproductive process but the book is extremely kid friendly and the reference is to one tiny illustration of a sperm cell and egg. Other than that, it's just cute artwork of the parents and baby elephant and nothing graphic at all. Hardcover, 33 pages, 9x11, color illustrations by Vanessa Snyder, published in 2006 by the Toledo Zoo $10.00
