Rachel Stein

Leaning back in their plush seats, Cheved and Hudis stared at the large screen, eagerly waiting for the film to begin. “Don’t forget the glasses,” Hudis reminded Cheved, putting on her dark visors. “Oh, right!” Cheved nodded, placing her pair on her nose with a grin. “How do I look?”

Soft music played, the room darkened, and the girls suddenly found themselves in the wilds ofAfrica together with a herd of gray elephants. Their science teacher had brought them to the IMAX for a field trip to make their lesson on mammals come alive. “These 3-D glasses make you feel as if the elephants are walking toward you,” Hudis whispered. “It’s awesome!” Cheved agreed, clutching Hudis’s hand as two elephants appeared to charge right at them. With a gasp, they watched a baby elephant slip into the river beside its mother, stumble, and fall. The current was strong, pushing the elephant under the water as it flailed and struggled to get up. Working as a family, several adult elephants lifted the baby upright with their trunks and shepherded it out of the water, not stopping until it was out of danger. “That was close!” Hudis breathed, feeling protective as the little elephant lay down on the bank to rest.
