Synopsis: 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 duo decides to take a look at the origins of the food they eat every day.
This decision takes them to a farm and garden where they get a chance to ride on a big red tractor, feed a bottle to a baby goat, sit on eggs to keep them warm, and take part in many other hands-on experiences that will delight both children and parents. Readers will learn about different types of farm-grown food, as well as meet many friendly, real animals.
At the end of the day, Ellie and Pudgy settle in for a snack made from all the different foods they found at the farm. Their unbreakable friendship and sense of adventure are sure to encourage young readers to use their imaginations when it comes to their own favorite stuffed animals!
Ellie and Pudgy realize they have never been to a farm and the pair decide to take a trip. They are delighted to explore and even make quite a few new friends. After riding a tractor, swinging in the garden, talking with the sheep, pigs, goats and other animals the friends reflect on their day while eating farm fresh snacks. All the tired pair need now is a nap!
Ellie's Fun Day at the Farm is a wonderful tale that will engage readers as they discover all the fun animals and exciting creatures that call the farm home. I love the real photos that fill the pages and give young readers glimpse of life on a farm. I found the book to well organized and appealing and the characters are adorable. There are also entertaining activities at the end of the book which children will enjoy. Ellie's Fun Day at the Farm is sure to be a fast favorite with little ones. I highly recommend picking up a copy.
