This is a really fascinating book about elephants in Namibia, Africa. Caitlin O'Connell, Donna M. Jackson and Timothy Rodwell did an amazing job with the information and pictures in this Sibert Award book. The Elephant Scientist contains background information on Caitlin O'Connell and her love for animals. Her research on elephants began when she encountered an abandoned elephant in 1992 in Etosha National Park. Towards the end of the book they provided information on how to adopt an elephant. Caitlin and her husband Timothy Rodwell have a program in which they sponsor through their organization called Utopia Scientific. It also includes a list of Pachyderm Terms at the end of the book that way the readers can understand the terminology that is being used throughout the book. It does come in handy if you are really interested in what you are reading. There are also some selected source notes located in the back as well. This would be a great book for teachers to introduce to their students if they are covering a section on elephants.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
