These books are so poignant! The picture on this particular cover is one of my favorites. The book is based on the true story of the baby hippo who was rescued and brought to an animal refuge in Kenya. He is named after the intrepid young man that finally corralled him so the community effort was successful in saving his life. This is the pictorial story of the giant tortoise who somehow couldn't escape the attention of the young and bewildered Owen, how he relented and became best friends with Owen and is heartwarming. I can read these books and never tire of them.

This book is a great read for kids, the story flows really well and it is easy to understand. I love that this books gives you background information on Owen and how he lived before he came into the animal’s sanctuary. This is such a great book for young kids as it has a wonderful collection of vocabulary words. It takes you to interesting places that Kids are sure to be captivated by. This book would be useful in a school library or just in your own children’s book collection and it introduces them to animals they do not get a chance to interact with on a day to day basic’s. It also allows them to learn about a new place and different culture. I am not usually a fan of non-fiction book but with this book the author does a great job of capturing your attention and drawing you in. As an animal lover this book also draws out your emotions in feeling for Owen and what he has to endure through his short life.

My 4th grade class read this story as part of their curriculum. I purchased this book to show more pictures of Owen and Mzee. The story was heart warming and the pictures were really nice in the book.

Wonderful book for my daughter's 3rd grade class (my daughter is the teacher). The children all enjoyed the book and before reading the book, I ask them to be able to locate Africa on the map and to give me 1 fact about a tsunami - they had 1 week to prepare and most all in the class participated. They LOVED the book and we then discussed how you can have friends of all ages, colors, nationalities and both male and female friends. Good example of friendship. I gave each a bookmark with the books title on it and then donated the book to the classroom. They were anxious for me to read the 2nd book about Owen and Mzee.
Exellent
beautiful story and pictures of a true situation. Hope Owen and Mzee have many happy years in each other's company. If animals can figure out how to live with each other and differences, why can't the human race do so?

While previewing the book prior to reading it to my first grade class, I was a little skeptical that my students would appreciate it, since English is the second language for all of them. My concerns were unfounded. While some of the more complex vocabulary words required explanation, students were captivated by the pictures and story. Each page offers the opportunity for discussion and learning. They were disappointed when time ran out and we were unable to finish the book in one reading. This book is a great springboard for a social studies unit on social action or geography and a science unit on hippos or tortises.

This excellent account of the true story of Owen and Mzee will delight any young reader. The beautiful pictures of the animals and the park are perfectly complemented by the easy-to-read text making this book a wonderful story-time resource. Though young readers may be saddened when Owen loses his mother, his adoption by Mzee will soothe any lingering concerns while teaching a powerful lesson about acceptance. This book would be an inspiring addition to any family library.
Very cool story, amazing pictures.
