Arthur and the Forgetful Elephant
“Maybe I can help!” exclaimed Arthur.
At least he hopes he can. But how? What does this forgetful elephant need? Arthur doesn’t know, but he’s determined to find out as he and the elephant share a playful and colorful day.
Arthur and the Forgetful Elephant explores memory loss from the perspective of both those who forget and those around them. With spare writing and poignant art, this story reminds us that compassion and togetherness can make even elephant-sized problems seem a little smaller.
A free, downloadable coloring page featuring Arthur and his new friend can be found at www.flyawaybooks.com/resources. A discussion guide developed in cooperation with the Alzheimer Association will also be available for download on our website March 2021.
"A tale of memory and kindness infused with warmth and a splash of color. . . . Powerful, playful, emotional, and so worth a place on the bookshelf."
