Review: Ellie Goes Back to School by Marci Fair

Marci and Elle Fair Are Back With Their Newest Children’s Book: Ellie Goes Back To School

The third installment of an award-winning children’s series, The Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant: Ellie Goes to School follows the charming plush toy and her best friend, Pudgy the Penguin, as they brave their latest exploratory journey—elementary school.

Having recently moved, Ellie is worried about her first day at a new school. But, encouraged by the presence of her trusted penguin sidekick, the little elephant decides to view the next few hours as just another buddy adventure packed with exciting surprises.

Throughout the day, Ellie and Pudgy meet the classroom pets, take a trip to the library, discover interesting instruments in music class, and so much more. They even learn a valuable lesson about friendship when they encounter a lonely student at recess. By the end of the day, the two best friends can’t wait to return to school the next morning!

Filled with delightful, real-life pictures of the plush elephant and penguin duo, Ellie Goes Back to School helps kids see that school is a safe place and learning is a fun adventure.

Don’t miss the first two installments: “Ellie Makes A New Friend” and “Ellie’s First Plane Ride”

We received this book to give an honest review.

We have read the other two books that involve Ellie and loved them. K wishes he had a stuff animal that could go on adventures with him, which I told him to pick the many animals that are in his toy chest and use his imagination. I think this is a good book to read to children going back to school as I think they can relate to some of the things that Ellie does.
Ellie moved to a new place so that means new friends and everything so you know Ellie is going to be a bit shy and scared of what to expect. With her friend Pudgy the penguin by her side we all know that they are going to have an adventure. We get to read all the fun things that Ellie and Pudgy get to do in school and even make a new friend with Sparkle the unicorn. I loved the idea of the Buddy Benches, I think all schools should have these as they are perfect for kids to not be bullies and build friendships. 
I hope Ellie has even more adventures as K seems to have found a book that he truly enjoys.
