The Elephant's Story
Before the Story

Who do you see on the cover of this book? What part of the elephant can we see? What part of the elephant is hidden from view? (The elephant’s trunk is a key part of this story). Do you also see a little girl? Her name is Gracie. Gracie loses something in this story and when Elephant finds it something very silly happens!

During the Story

After the pages where the elephant sniffs up the words and sneezes out the letters, stop and make sure the children understand what happened.  The elephant sniffed up all the words from the book into her trunk. And when she sneezed, what came out? Now elephant has a problem. Let’s see how she’s going to solve it.

After the Story

Were elephant’s friends helpful? What did Gracie do to get her letters back? Gracie made the letters back into words and the words into a story.  What was Gracie’s story about? What do you think elephant will do next time he finds a book?
