Meet Bob the elephant in the story Bob Saves the Day - Hooray! by A.R. Matthews. Bob had an important job, that of watching over the elephants. He used to do his job with diligence but he was lazy. The other elephants retaliated and asked him to do his job instead of being lazy. Bob only wanted to play. He decided to take a nap on his bed and things went differently that day for Bob. It was a hot day and Bob was not in a mood to watch over the other elephants. He heard the sound of trucks and he was scared. He knew the poachers were there and he was scared that they would take the elephants' tusks. He saw a young elephant surrounded by poachers and Bob charged forward. Would he be able to save the young elephant?

This is an adorable story of a lazy elephant becoming a hero among his herd, and it is also about kindness, friendship, and unity. The author's illustrations are as fascinating as the words and bring the story alive to young readers. The elephant facts and the details at the end of the story are educational and informative and give readers more knowledge about elephants, protecting wildlife, and their habitats. 'Save the species, Save the planet' - this story spreads awareness and will encourage the future generation to conserve and protect. The story is good for reading aloud and storytelling sessions both in school and at home because of its concept. Stories like this are the best way to help children understand the importance of saving wildlife.
