Beginning with the soft-edged charcoal illustrations by Steven D'Amico, which are beautifully rendered in playful, primary colors, Ella and her environment provide opportunities for extended interaction by learning colors and counting, depth, perspective and recognition.
In my humble opinion, the enchanting story written by Carmela D'Amico, aside from being the beginning of a heartfelt, bonding relationship between the reader and the character through experiences, provides parents a perfect opportunity to address and explore a multitude of challenges awaiting youngsters in social settings, such as...
Parental encouragement, trust and guidence, without ordering the child 'what to do and how to do it', (as it is so important to allow a child to feel empowered and confident in knowing the difference between right and wrong behaviour and action); Being the 'new person' in an already established setting, such as a classroom; Children teasing and name calling; The importance of being aware of, and following rules, and most of all... Trusting their instincts and to 'act from the heart with pure intent'.
I, myself, and the children that I am fortunate to have in my life, have truly enjoyed this book and are eagerly awaiting the next chapter in Ella's new life on Elephant Island!
This character and her trials, tribulations and triumphs are destined to become a favorite- such as Curious George and other timeless classics!
WE LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
