We talk about grandparents and circus folks...and elephants. Our book is called "One Amazing Elephant" by Linda Oatman High. Our readers Akshaj, Ishnoor, and Medha from Virginia have some firsthand experience with elephants (did you know that elephants smell like hay?) Our celebrity reader is actress Holly Vagley. Writer Oatman High says the idea for the story came from her late grandmother...after she was dead. Taped live at Virginia's 2017 Fall for the Book Festival.
