Titles: Ella the Elegant Elephant, Ella Sets the Stage, Ella Takes the Cake

Author/Illustrator: Carmela & Steve D’amico

Publisher: Scholastic Inc.

Genre: Kids Picture Book

How cute are these!? We picked them up at the library this morning and already kiddo is hooked.  They follow the adventures of a little elephant named Ella, who is shy but always finds a creative and sweet solution to her problems.  The result? This tiny, unsure elephant always does something outstanding for her friends, family, and ultimately learns beautiful life lessons for herself and her readers.

The pictures are bright and lovely, they capture the eye of the kiddo and remind her heavily of Babar.  Many reviewers compare the illustrations to that of the world renown Madeline.  Either way, I find them adorable and kiddo gives them a solid thumbs up.  She is especially captured by Ella’s fabulous hat, as kiddo wears her own fabulous hat all the time.  It will be worth it to obtain our own copies once these go back to the library.
