Kathi Appelt’s Elephants Aloft may be the best concept book since that old Rosie’s Walk. For his wonderful pictures, Keith Baker used acrylics on illustration board, strong line and texture, and a lovely soft pallette. With a printed text that is exclusively prepositions, the pictures tell the story. Two baby elephants climb in a hot air balloon, float above the onion-domed stuctures, between stone pillars, behind a waterfall, beyond the rainbow, and into the arms of Auntie Rwanda.
