About the book

Bringing Back the Art of Authentic Connection

There is an epidemic in our culture: an excessive use of smartphones. It distracts us from living fully in the moment and connecting with each other in a deep and meaningful way.

Sammy – The Flying Purple Baby Elephant helps children and adults alike to remember the joy of genuine connection with another being. And it does it with a lot of heart and humor.
