Ella the Elegant Elephant by Carmela and Steven D’Amico

Cover Image

This is a warm and cuddly story, sure to become a favorite.  Ella anxiously awaits the first day of school.  She’s the newest and smallest elephant on Elephant Island and is concerned about making friends.  She wears a lucky charm to school, her grandmother’s beautiful red hat, and ends up truly saving the day.   If you like this story (and who wouldn’t!), there are more Ella books, so be sure to check out the whole series.

book review

Flotsam by David Wiesner

Cover Image

David Wiesner is an award winning author/illustrator, and has created another fabulous book.  Flotsam is a wordless peek at one boy’s surprising adventures at the beach, as he finds a camera and begins to take photographs.  This book gives you and your child much to discuss with each page, and will also give your child an opportunity to create his or her own story, jumpstarting their imagination with wonderful illustrations.
