Synopsis: Mom's Choice Gold Award Winner! 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!
Ellie just moved to a new neighborhood and she's gloomy because she doesn't have a single friend. Hoping to cheer herself up, Ellie goes out for yogurt, tries swinging, and plays games, but nothing is much fun without someone to share it with. After reading a book about making friends, Ellie decides to go to the playground where it seems she just might find a friend after all.
This is such a lovely story about friendship and the characters could not be more darling. The illustrations are actual photographs which I found clever and engaging. The authors' imaginations shine through in this bright and creative picture book.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available onAmazon.
