Change is hard and requires efforts - yet, sometimes it can be made easier with some simple strategies. This book teaches children and their educators some simple, evidence-based strategies to make change easier.

As they stroll through the forest, Mr. Monkey and Ms. Elephant encounter different characters facing different problems, from Mrs. Squirrel who wants to cross a stream to Mr. Bear who wants to be loved. Both Mr. Monkey and Ms. Elephant have good intentions and try to help their friends. Mr. Monkey uses a traditional problem solving approach, whereas Ms. Elephant uses a solution-focused approach, and it is the latter that saves the day.

A page of commentary aimed at educators, which includes quotes, key concepts and additional references, accompanies each of the 9 short stories for children from 5th grade and up.

This is one of the few attempts made so far to popularize solution-focused practice, an innovative and radically different approach to change and to problem solving. Coaches, consultants and managers, in addition to therapists, are increasingly using Solution-Focused practices to deliver value to their clients quickly and effectively.
