"The Magician's Elephant" by Kate DiCamillo

MagiciansElephantI had forgotten we had this book so, when I recently found it on the shelves, I read it right away.  It's a lovely children's book about an elephant who appears magically and the lives that get intertwined and changed as a result.  

I love this quote:

...he knew, without knowing how he knew, how to sing.

He knew how to construct a song out of the nothing of day-to-day life and how to sing that nothing into a song so beautiful that it could sustain the vision of a whole and better world.
