This one-of-a-kind children’s book features an artistic elephant named Ellie who is determined to stop her home, the zoo, from closing. Pairing the heartwarming story with adorable watercolor pictures that add a little something extra to the text, Ellie is a must-read and the perfect choice for children. It is sure to bring a little joy to the kids as they follow the loveable animals through their mission to save their home and contributes a great message: that we are all unique, and, if we work together and combine our individual talents, we can accomplish great things.

I purchased Ellie for my daughters (ages 3 & 5) and they both LOVE this book! Each page is beautifully illustrated and my 3 year-old especially loves all of the color and animals in the Zoo.  As a parent, I like that the story has a positive message about everyone finding/having their own talent or contribution to this world, big or small.  I will definitely recommend to all of my friends!
