Summary: Ellie the Elephant and Pudgy the Penguin have captivated readers in five previous books. The newest addition to the Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant series follows the friends as they go camping and explore nature.Ellie and Pudgy have fun planning their camping trip in the mountains and solving problems once they get there. They set up a tent, go for a hike, play games, make s’mores, and look at the stars. During their trip, Ellie and Pudgy talk about the importance of having new experiences and being mindful of their surroundings.
Marci and Elle Fair have written a charming story for every child with a cherished stuffed animal. Thirteen-year-old Elle knows what children like to read in a story and has helped create an unforgettable new journey for Ellie and Pudgy.
Included in the back of the book is a guide to help parents teach their young readers about the importance of appreciating and conserving the environment. Eco-conscious families will appreciate gentle suggestions about reducing their environmental impact and enjoying nature.
This time readers join Ellie and Pudgy as they explore the great outdoors and sleep under a brilliant night sky full of stars. The duo go hiking, play games, and make s'mores, but best of all they make memories that will last a lifetime.
I have followed Ellie and Pudgy on all of their excursions and have to say this one is my favorite. As an avid hiker and waterfall seeker, I was anxious when Ellie and Pudgy heard the roaring of water, knowing what beautiful site awaited them down the trail. I loved the photo of the pair behind the waterfall as they felt the mist on their faces.
Ellie Camps Under the Stars is well written and beautifully illustrated, using actual photos which visually enhance the story and give young readers a glimpse of what they too can discover while on their own camping expedition.
Kudos to the authors for another wonderful edition in The Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant series.
