This is a great book by a researcher who studied a herd of elephants the way Dianne Fosse studied gorillas and Jane Goodall studied chimps.

And if you're looking for a fun family movie for this weekend, I recommend Operation Dumbo Drop, based on a true story. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHd7O6YeHIU
