2 books for tonight
This book is based on a true story of an elephant named Zambezi who was rescued when he was only a month old. The story features Aaron a boy who helped rescue Zambezi and who continues to work with elephants at the Lilayi Elephant Nursery. The book has several chapters of the story as well as informational blurbs about elephants in general.
The book talks about the design process and 9 real life engineering projects. The projects themselves were pretty interesting, especially the bridge and I can see this having a place in STEM, maker, design thinking initiatives.
