Welcome to Nonfiction Monday! My featured title is The Elephant Scientist by Caitlin O'Connell & Donna M. Jackson.
Caitlin O'Connell is an American scientist who has been studying elephants in the African country of Namibia. Her area is elephant communication.
Here is a sample describing an a-ha moment:
"Then slowly, almost imperceptibly, many of the elephants turned toward the source of the signal-a shaker buried nearby...The entire herd had responded-just as I had witnessed years ago."
This book covers African elephants. For Asian elephants I invite you to visit an earlier post.
