the story book for your kids.
This is such a great example of what we all should be!
This is one of those books I feel every child should have. It's truly one of the most heartwarming stories I've ever read. Maybe you've seen the video clips (if not, see the video below) of Tarra, the 8,700 lb. Asian elephant, and Bella, the dog who is Tarra's best friend.
Every elephant who arrives at the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee searches out that special someone to spend most of their time with. Winkie and Sissy quickly became best buds. Same with Dulary and Misty. But Tarra never found a best friend—until Bella came into her life, and then it was ''BFF'' at first sight.
With brilliant photography and well-written text, this book chronicles the amazing relationship of these two very different animals. The most heartwarming part of the book is when Bella is found lying in a shallow ditch, unable to walk due to a spinal cord injury. Tarra never left her side.
When Bella was taken to the sanctuary office to heal, Tarra just stood outside, waiting for her friend to get better. And get better, she did! When they were reunited, Tarra gently petted Bella with the tip of her trunk (Can you stand it???).
Please get this book to share with your children. We have much to learn about relationships from these two creatures who look beyond their immense differences and just love each other. Sigh.
