The Bird and the Elephant

Philosophy for Young Minds

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


“Amazing” - Dr Suess.

Well, that’s what we hope he would have said! See what you think? The Bird and The Elephant is a poetic philosophical journey that starts with a chance encounter between and a bird and (that’s right, you guessed it!) an elephant. Join their journey as they step through the jungle talking their way through ten philosophical subjects. Starting with: (in order)

Who are we?
Where do we come from?
Why are we here?
Why do bad things happen?

The bird is impatient and hot headed while the elephant is calming and wise. Will the bird learn anything from their encounter? Will you learn anything from meeting them both? Philosophy is not here to provide the answers - but to get you to think about the questions. Be a part of their wonderful journey and see what answers you discover.

It gets more exciting every time a page is turned. Great resource for teachers who can ask children about their thoughts and what they infer from the text. A pleasant and relatable book for the young minds in all of us too!


Loved it, such powerful questions

Touched ❤️

What a funny, beautiful, honest, spiritual, emotional, positive read!
So sad it came to an end so soon .....
A very clever approach to some topics that not everyone are open to!
The way this is written, it can't help but capture you're imagination and I would love to see this on the big screen!
My 2 year old will so be reading this in a few years.
