Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Laura and her family leave their little house in the Big Woods and travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build again.

But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.
