I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
A beautiful blend of real life and make-believe, The Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant series recounts the everyday life of a stuffed animal. The debut book, Ellie Makes a New Friend, follows the plush elephant as she moves to a new neighborhood and has to find a new playmate.
Written and photographed by mother Marci Fair and her ten-year-old daughter Elle Fair, the story is uniquely illustrated with delightful photos of the little elephant’s journeys through the neighborhood as she tries to settle into her new home. Children will love seeing a toy living in a real-world setting, and parents and teachers will appreciate Ellie’s positive and creative approach to finding answers to her problems.
Fun, playful, and packed with imagination, you won’t want to miss the upcoming adventures of Ellie—and her new friend!
This book made me smile!
Such a cute, fun little book that is so different and it’s goal is to make you happy! The book greatly resembles that of a scrapbook; with pictures and fun designs in the background, it is definitely a treasure to get a hold of.
The writing is easy to understand and I really liked the creativity of the photographs. The heart of the authors is inspiring, with the way they are using these books to help children in need, a portion of every book sale is given to children in need.
The Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant is definitely a series that I encourage you to pick up. The adorable pictures and ministry of the book will brighten your day! I rate Ellie Makes a New Friend 5 out 5 stars.
