Water for elephants. While I wish I could brag about how I've always loved elephants, it was this book turned movie that made me fall in love with them and, of course, it brought awareness to the horrific world of those enslaved by man. PLEASE do not go to animal circus. Cirque du Soleil is the in thing anyway :S
