Wandering Woolly, by Andrea Gabriel, earns the CLC Seal of Approval

Wandering Woolly, written and illustrated by Andrea Gabriel, is a children's picture book about a young Woolly Mammoth which becomes separated from its pack. The young Woolly doesn't realize the potential for danger until it's too late.  When she is caught up in the swiftly flowing river, the current takes her further and further from her mother and the safety of the pack. The final outcome of this story is upbeat and heartwarming.

This is a lovely book which incorporates learning about the Woolly Mammoth while teaching an understanding of the importance of staying close to an adult for safety's sake.  Gabriel has skillfully blended fact and fiction in this book which young boys and girls are sure to connect with on many levels.  This book is highly recommended for home and school libraries and for classroom reading.

Wandering Woolly has earned the Children's Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
