Hierdie gedig was ge nspereer deur die ware verhaal van Themba, 'n ses- maande-ou weesolifant wat aangemeem is deur Albert die skaap. Die twee vriende woon in 'n natuurreservaat in Suid Afrika.

Twee klein stertjies het een dag ontmoet, Heel per ongeluk onder warm sonstrale het hulle gegroet: "Hallo, kom ons speel " met swaaiende sterte wat wys. Hulle was nie dieselfde nie, tog albei was grys. Een het groot voete, die ander was korter; Een glimlag wyd, die ander se mond was kleiner.(...)Die kremetartboom was oud, dit lyk spesiaal gemaak asof 'n re l: Sit saam met 'n vriend, om my groot skadu te deel.Dit was pret om kos te deel, water en lag;Dan rustig rus, sit en gesels en vir die re n te wag.

5 STARS Readers' Favorite BOOK:

"The Elephant and the Sheep by Patricia Furstenberg is a fun little book. The story is about an elephant and a sheep that become friends. Each day they meet at the water puddle, but somehow the elephant always arrives first. The sheep tries to beat the elephant to the water puddle first, but each day manages to always arrive second. Until one day the sheep discovers what the elephant's secret is. I liked The Elephant and the Sheep, but at the same time it made me sad. The elephant's secret was heartbreaking. The sheep was a very good friend to invite the elephant back to his home. I could not help but wonder what adventures lay ahead for this unique duo. I was surprised that this book was inspired by a true story. Furstenberg has piqued my interest in learning more about the original story.

I read this story with my six-year-old daughter who loves animals; she thought the sheep and the elephant were a funny pair. She was wondering why the elephant lived where he did. The wording in the book is easy to read and in a poetic style. We both liked the illustrations. They are colorful and cute. I really liked the message that Furstenberg put into this story. It is one that children need to learn at an early age. Overall, my child and I enjoyed this book. My child was curious about the other animal books that Furstenberg has written. So, we plan on reading the others together soon. I recommend this book for anyone with young children."
