              Early on a January morning in 2015, a young bull elephant touched a sagging electric line in the Paneri Tea Plantation in the Udalgari District of Assam, India. The elephant's soft-padded feet conducted the current, and the animal fell, kicking in the mud. The local veterinarian ...called to the scene thought the tusker was going to die. The forest department warden called the one person who could help: Dr. Kushal Konwar Sarma, India's beloved elephant doctor. The Elephant Doctor of India brings the middle-grade reader into the heart of Assam, a remote land of tea plantations, paddy fields, and ancient forests. Author Janie Chodosh spent time with Dr. Sarma and brings his incredible story-and the lives of these magnificent animals-to readers in classrooms everywhere.

              Years before Diana Ross, Mary Wells was the first Motown solo superstar, the internationally popular songstress who sang the megahit My Guy. Her songs consistently and repeatedly reached huge audiences in America and England, both black and white. She captivated the Beatles, tour...ed with them, and was briefly more popular than they were on the pop charts. But Wells was much more than a successful singer with an alluring voice. She also displayed an irrepressible fighting spirit, along with a ferocious belief in her own talent. She left Motown at age 21 and spent the rest of her life trying to fight her way back to the top. Though she never managed to do so, she never gave up her struggle, and the long fight ennobled her. She also had a series of tumultuous affairs and marital attachments with several well-known singers and songwriters. And near the end of her life, Wells fought a drawn-out and courageous battle with throat cancer, giving perhaps her gutsiest performance. Peter Benjaminson has spent years interviewing Wells's friends, lovers, and husbands, and obtained an amazingly detailed unreleased taped interview with Wells herself. In Mary Wells, he tells her whole story, complete with never-before revealed details about the sex, the violence, and the drugs in her life--and about her Motown hits that captivated the world.

              Children love challenges, especially ones that involve hands-on experimentation and friendly competition. Can they build a bridge using only pasta and glue, one that a toy car can drive both under and over, and is sturdy enough to carry a considerable weight? Can they construct a... roller coaster from recycled cardboard tubes in which the marble car jumps a track to land safely at its final destination? And can they create a device to safely catch a freefalling egg? These projects and more can be found in Junk Drawer Engineering, which demonstrates that you don't need high-tech equipment to make learning fun--just what you can find in your recycling bin and around the house. At its heart, engineering is the application of science to solve a design problem. Science teacher Bobby Mercer provides readers with 25 open-ended design challenges for children of all ages. The projects can be modified to meet the skill levels of the children doing them, from elementary school kids to teenagers. Though each challenge includes suggested materials and one step-by-step, illustrated solution, children are encouraged to modify and improve on the basic design, and come up with new and more complicated design parameters. Educators and parents will find this title a handy resource to teach children problem-solving skills and applied physics, all while having a lot of fun. --
