This book is geared to reach the preschool to eight-year-olds. The size of the book should be 8.5 by 11. When I had learned that elephants are the only animals that cannot jump, my mind began thinking of this story. Even as a child, stories would got through my mind. I loved fairy tales. My mom would read to us every night. My imagination would run amuck. I would be a fairy princess, a queen, whatever. I was a skinny, homely kid with curly blond hair. Naturally, books would become an escape for me.

Throwing the Elephant

Author: Stanley Bing
Publisher: Harper Collins
ISBN: 0061791318
Release Date: 2009-03-17
Genre: Business & Economics

Sit down. Breathe deep. This is the last business book you will ever need. For in these pages, Stanley Bing solves the ultimate problem of your working life: How to manage the boss. The technique is simple . . . as simple as throwing an elephant. All it takes is the proper state of mind, a step-by-step plan, and a great leap of faith. This humble guide provides all these and more. It is Zen that enables one to take an object of enormous weight and size and mold it in one's grasp like a ball of Silly Putty. For senior management, in truth, is the silliest putty of them all. This comprehensive course walks budding business bodhisattvas through basic skills needed to provide the simple elephant handling that makes everyday life possible, including but not limited to the primary task of following along after the elephant with a little broom and dustpan. Serious students will then move to intermediate steps, from Polishing the Elephant's Tusks to Hiding from the Elephant When It Has Been Drinking and Feels Quite Nasty. Beyond this level lies the land of the practiced Zen masters, culminating in the ability to leverage and then throw the now-weightless elephant--and even play catch with it at corporate retreats. If What Would Machiavelli Would Do? was the meanest business book since the Renaissance, Throwing the Elephant provides the yang to that yin. Because sometimes you've got to be selfless, compassionate, and completely empty to get the job done. Stanley Bing is a columnist for Fortune magazine and the author of What Would Machiavelli Do? and Lloyd: What Happened, a novel. By day, he works for a gigantic multinational conglomerate whose identity is one of the worst-kept secrets in business.

It is just too hot for anything!" cried Chako, one of the monkeys in the circus cage. "It is hotter under this tent than ever it was in the jungle! Whew!" and he hung by his tail and swung to and fro from a wooden bar. "In the jungle we could find a pool of water where we could keep cool," said another monkey, who was poking around the floor of the cage, hoping he could find a peanut. But there were only shells. "I wish I could go back to the jungle," he chattered.

Elijah and the Elephant is a dream I had one night. It was a fun movie my mind played as I was sleeping. When I woke up the next morning, I could not stop thinking about the dream.

My husband and kids encouraged me to turn the story into a book to share with others. I hope others will enjoy this fun story. It is a story about a adventurous young girl, friendship, and helping others.
