Celebrate National Library Week! Books I Love: Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived

1. Oh my, where to start? I l-o-v-e-d this book. It reads like a novel and yet it’s not.

2. My heartstrings were definitely pulled and I cried when I read this book. A lot.

3. Elephants occupy a huge part of my heart. While my beloved French language Babar is where the love was born, Modoc solidified my feelings.

4. Water for Elephants reminded me of Modoc. If I had to choose one or the other, I’d pick Modoc.

If you were in charge of the universe, what book would you insist everyone read?

One thought on “Celebrate National Library Week! Books I Love: Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived

  1. There is a true story of an Elephant named Modoc that escaped from The Great American Circus and roamed free through the town of Wabash, Indiana for 5 days in November of 1942.
    It seems like Water for Elephants has a scene from that incident.
    Modoc the World’s Greatest Elephant sounds like a great read!
