0 Reviews

In an era when whimsy is often disparaged, this entertaining book uses an unconventional approach to discuss an integral function of everyday life: solving problems and making decisions.

Life Lessons from the Jungle: Naming the Elephant is an amusing tale, in which co-workers sent to a seminar suddenly find themselves in an unexpected setting. With a set of rules entirely different from those in their day-to-day lives, they quickly discover they must complete a simple task that can be accomplished only by pooling talents and sharing experiences.

The interesting personalities of the participants, along with the circumstances in which they find themselves, create an entertaining backdrop against which important lessons are taught - and learned.

Follow Loki, Leo, Petra, and the others as they learn truths about themselves, and those with whom they associate on a daily basis, while helping one another name the elephant.

About the author (2005)

Stratford W Kenny, decorated WW II veteran, retired New York City police officer, and painter, is greatly loved and missed by his family and large circle of friends. Adorning the walls of many, his art exemplifies his love of life and beauty. While Strat's remains lay in Arlington Cemetery, his spirit roams free, bringing inspiration and encouragement to those who knew him best. The illustrations in "Tinker and Company," honor the beautiful puppy rescued, nurtured, and spoiled, who rather than succumb to parvovirus, grew and thrived. Through them, along with the stories of Tinker's adventures, she and Strat live on. Passionately advocating lifelong learning, Barbara McAdoo, has always loved stories and their use in education. Believing people learn best when the story is the medium for the lesson, she uses tales and anecdotes to impart the message and bring it to life. Whether youthful in years or young at heart, Barbara's stories bring laughter and joy to those who receive them.
