Have you ever wondered what would happen if an elephant got the hiccups? Well, thanks to James Preller, we now know that some very silly things could happen!
All of Elephant’s friends offer their own home remedies for curing hiccups, such as standing on his head, drinking water fast, and holding his breath to the count of ten, but none of them work until little Mouse surprises everyone.
All young children relate to having hiccups, and they enjoy making the hiccup sound when it appears in the story. They also love to make the jungle animals’ sounds. You can also make up a tune for “I know a way to make the hiccups stop!” as each animal offers their suggestion.
This story is perfect for music time. It’s simple, funny, relatable, and easy to turn into an interactive musical experience. I definitely recommend “Hiccups for Elephant.”
