Our librarian turned author has a winner for sure. Soon to be published this September is A PASSION FOR ELEPHANTS: THE REAL LIFE ADVENTURE OF FIELD SCIENTIST CYNTHIA MOSS By Toni Buzzeo. This is a great book about Cynthia Moss who dedicated her life's work to elephants in Africa. It traces her life's work and interests from her early years to career. The book is a wonderful mix of story and facts. Students will love this book and it is a must have for school libraries to use for research and biography lessons. The art work is a perfect match for the text and the format lends itself to a read aloud or an informational assignment resource.
I hope to see more books like this from Toni Buzzeo. I hope this becomes an upper elementary beginning middle school student's biography series.
