Do you feel all alone, like you are the white elephant in the room? Do you know what a white elephant is? The term 'white elephant' is an idiom ( a word group with an entirely different meaning from the separate words when the words are said all together) for something you can't afford to keep and can't throw away. The term comes from a story about the kings of Siam (now Thailand) who made presents of their sacred white elephants to those they didn't like in order to ruin them through the cost of caring for the elephants. Since the animals were sacred, they couldn't work or carry loads. The cost of keeping them was not equal their worth, and a gift from the king had to be kept and could not be refused. People should never be white elephants, but sometimes others are not kind; and they can make you feel like one. Find out why you are NOT a white elephant, and why there is (after all) someone who wants you. Award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, weaves a charming story in verse about what one white elephant found out about friendship and how we should treat one another. Enjoy this book as you think about some very important things and practice your reading skills at the same time. Most of all. remember learning is fun!
