Human Town is a delightful book with beautiful illustrations (reminiscent of Oliver Jeffers' stories) and an impactful message for young readers. This story helps young students put themselves in someone else's shoes and see from a different perspective.

The story initially seems light-hearted but once the family of elephants enters into Human Town, you realize that there are heavier messages woven within. Students can make a connection to the extinction of the humans in Human Town to the real-life endangerment of elephants in the real world. The way that humans live their lives and treat one another in Human Town is eye-opening and challenging. This book would be a great hook for older students in upper elementary or even middle school to discuss the realities of humankind and changes they would want to see in their future.

Human Town would be a wonderful addition to any school or home library! It is versatile and beautifully illustrated so it can be enjoyed by all ages!

Thank you NetGalley and Tiny Owl Publishing for the advanced copy. All opinions are my own.
