I received this book from the author(s) for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
Join Ellie the Elephant and her friend, Pudgy the Penguin, on a fun visit to the farm in this delightful children’s book cowritten by author Marci Fair and her twelve-year-old daughter Elle.
Ellie and Pudgy–characters based on Elle’s two favorite stuffed animals–have had many grand adventures. Now, in the fifth installment of the Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant series, the curious duo decides to take a look at the origins of the food they eat every day.
Another addition to one of the most creative children’s book series I’ve ever seen, was done even better! Ellie’s Fun Day at the Farm follows the lives of the stuffed animals Ellie and Pudgy in real life photos as they visit the farm to learn about where their everyday food comes from.
Put together much like a scrapbook telling a story, the pictures of the stuffed animals and interaction activities will get the kid’s imagination rolling and have them laughing as they will probably want to read this book to their own stuffed animals. This book is the first in the series to have activities included such as connect the dots pictures, a crossword puzzle, and a “find the differences” feature and they just add to the fun.
In addition to the good qualities of the book itself, its nice to know that a portion of every book sale goes to help children in need and encourages kids to be creative in helping others.
So without a doubt, Ellie’s Fun Day at the Farm receives 5 out of 5 stars and I highly recommend it, as well as the entire series, to an audience of anyone under 10 or 11.
