Nonfiction Monday

                                      

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.

Here are links  to other titles:

Ms. Yingling Reads:  Witches: the Absolute True Tale of Witches in Salem.
NC Teacher Stuff:   Tornado! 
A Teaching Life:  Genius of Islam and a second title Creep & Flutter.
Laura Salas: For the Life of Birds: the Life of Roger Tory Peterson.
