But when Aaron encounters a newborn elephant in distress, his instinct is not to run away, but to jump to its rescue. This is the beginning of a beautiful bond of friendship and a meaningful vocation. This moving story, written by Margriet Ruurs and stunningly illustrated by Pedro Covo, is inspired by the true story of Aaron and Zambezi-a teenage Zambian boy and an orphaned baby elephant that was rescued from a swimming pool at a holiday lodge. Aaron had been a casual laborer, just trying to make enough money to support his family, but when gamekeepers noticed his natural ability to care for animals, he was offered a job as an elephant keeper at the Lilayi Elephant Nursery, where his still works to this day. Zambezi was only one month old when he was found nearly drowning in a holiday lodge swimming pool. His mother had been killed by poachers and he'd been separated from his herd. Severely dehydrated, he'd tried to drink from the pool and had fallen in. Now Zambezi is nearly 6 years old and is doing very well. This unique informational picture book for middle-graders includes three non-fiction spreads, which provide intervals in the story and opportunities for classroom discussions. These spreads feature photos as well as information about elephants, poaching and the amazing work that is done at an elephant orphanage.

Fault lines in the Constitution : the framers, their fights, and the flaws that affect us today / written by Cynthia Levinson and Sanford Levinson.

  • 13 September 2018
cover imageGridlock! Gerrymandering! The Electoral college! How did our government get so complicated? As it turns out, many of the issues we struggle with today have their roots in the creation of the United States Constitution. Husband-and-wife team Cynthis Levinson and Sanford Levinson take us back to the beginnings of this document and show how these fault lines were first introduced - and how their unintended consequences continue to affect us today. The Framers of the Constitution, they remind us, faced many of the same challenges and disputes that we do in the twenty-first century. Sometimes there was conflict, sometimes compromise - and the Framers met most of the challenges with great skill and foresight. Some issues, however, were just too complex or controversial to settle in such a brief time. Today we are still suffering from the consequences of disputes and decisions made in an overheated room in 1787, as a new form of government for our country was being created. -- from dust jacket.

Alice Paul and the fight for women's rights : from the vote to the Equal Rights Amendment / Deborah Kops.

  • 13 September 2018
cover imageHere is the story of leader Alice Paul, from the women's suffrage movement -- the long struggle for votes for women -- to the "second wave," when women demanded full equality with men. Paul made a significant impact on both. She reignited the sleepy suffrage moment with dramatic demonstrations and provocative banners. After women won the right to vote in 1920, Paul wrote the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), which would make all the laws that discriminated against women unconstitutional. Passage of the ERA became the rallying cry of a new movement of young women in the 1960s and '70s. Paul saw another chance to advance women's rights when the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 began moving through Congress. She set in motion the "sex amendment," which remains a crucial legal tool for helping women fight discrimination in the workplace. Includes archival images, author's note, bibliography, and source notes.
