After being given instructions by her Uncle Jack on just how to catch an elephant, a young girl eagerly sets out to complete this task. Remember," says her uncle, "elephants are crazy about raisins. And elephants hate cake. Besides those two strange bits of advice, she is also told to take a telescope and a pair of tweezers. Elephant ears were made out of a construction paper cut out ears stapled to a strip of construction paper to make a head band. Duct tape wrapped around a rolled up news paper served as a tail, & the nose was simply our volunteer elephant's swinging arm.

Talk about How to Catch An Elephant


melody of you
I originally stumbled across this book at the library & it quickly became a favorite with the whole family.
The story is original & funny and appeals to both the kids & the grown ups.

We even did a participation of a pre-school class that really got the kids involved.

All the kids made "telescopes" out of paper towel tubes. Elephant ears were made out of a construction paper cut out ears stapled to a strip of construction paper to make a head band.
Duct tape wrapped around a rolled up news paper served as a tail, & the nose was simply our volunteer elephant's swinging arm.
The cakes were made out of different sized boxes decorated with paint, glitter, marker, etc. to look like cakes.
And, of course, there were raisins & a mini elephant toy.

We then read the story, having the kids participate by looking through their "telescopes' & stomping their feet like the elephant. We had a child picked to be the girl at the end & had a volunteer (the other teacher) be "the elephant".
At the end, all the kids wanted a chance to be the girl & especially, the elephant. This led to many days of rotating the characters.

We had the children make their own elephant ears & help decorate more "cake" boxes. We didn't eat the raisins from the story (ew, "floor raisins" that had been stomped on!), but used the left over raisins for snack as a nice tie in to the story.

I hope others can enjoy this book as much as we did!

This book is a lot of fun to read dramatically to my 2.5 year old daughter. It's one of her favorites. It's not a very long book which makes it an easy bedtime story, though it's not a calming sort of book!

This book is such fun to read with children as young as 3 years old. The repetitive nature of the story encourages participation of the young listener. The joy of the story is it's funny and ludicrous. I hope that this writer keeps on keeping on!

Christmas was complete when I was able to find this book! My little grandson just loves it and we have to read it every time we go to his house!

Whimsical, clever, engaging and fun. Perfect for little girls and all new readers! Very happy to find a copy... don't really understand why some of my favorite stories for children have become difficult to find or very expensive.
Nalmezar
This clever story is a favorite in my family. It is a great read-aloud for story time at school or at home. It is one my children quote from often.

Great!
This is just weird. I think I had heard this story before, maybe in a shorter version like a joke. Basically, it says that in order to catch an elephant, you need cakes, raisins, a telescope, and a pair of tweezers. Because apparently, elephants love raisins but hate cake. Like the existence of cake just makes them angry. This is the weirdest, most surreal book. After some antics with cake and raisins, you're supposed to look through the telescope backwards so the elephant is tiny, and then pick it up with the tweezers. And that's it. Okay...? It's basically a long, drawn-out illustration of a surreal joke. It's not very funny. There's no point, no plot, and no real message. And the drawings are odd. It's one of those books where the style looks like something the average person could learn to draw in a month or two. It's very strange.
