Entertaining an Elephant is the heartwarming story of a burned-out teacher struggling though his fifteenth year of teaching. Through a set of unexpected events, this teacher becomes re-inspired with both his profession and his own life. Woven into this short novel are quotes from world-renown spiritual and philosophical writers who suggest ways for us to face the tough challenges of today's world. Already in its 16th printing, the book is a favorite among educators and parents. Priced to sell in bulk, administrators and instructors often use the novel as a book study with faculties or in schools of education. - Publisher.
