Here's a book that is going on my wish list promptly: Pennies for Elephants by Lita Judge (author of another phenomenal book, One Thousand Tracings). Pennies for Elephants tells the true story of two children who, in 1914, helped to raise $6,000 in 2 months to help the local zoo buy three retired circus elephants. View the trailer here:

The author's website is also a valuable source of information, featuring period photos and an activity guide for teachers.
