    About the book

    Share Irene’s discovery that her complete gift of herself – given together with her friends – reveals the immensity of God’s love for each of them even in the face of danger.

    Irene is an enormous elephant who learns that God loves her enormously – and He made her that way for a purpose. This is a beautifully written and engaging story that will touch the hearts of children and adults alike!

    Gigantic and gentle, Irene the elephant personifies the notion that, when one relies on God for guidance, weaknesses become strengths and hopeless situations become powerful moments of peace and possibility. Irene is just great. Truly first rate. A delightful read that will warm the hearts of young people for many years to come
