Review: Ellie Camps Under the Stars by:E. Fair/M. Fair

 The Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant - Ellie Camps Under the Stars
About the Book:
Ellie the Elephant and Pudgy the Penguin have captivated readers in five previous books. The newest addition to the Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant series follows the friends as they go camping and explore nature.

Ellie and Pudgy have fun planning their camping trip in the mountains and solving problems once they get there. They set up a tent, go for a hike, play games, make s'mores, and look at the stars. During their trip, Ellie and Pudgy talk about the importance of having new experiences and being mindful of their surroundings.

Marci and Elle Fair have written a charming story for every child with a cherished stuffed animal. Thirteen-year-old Elle knows what children like to read in a story and has helped create an unforgettable new journey for Ellie and Pudgy.

Included in the back of the book is a guide to help parents teach their young readers about the importance of appreciating and conserving the environment. Eco-conscious families will appreciate gentle suggestions about reducing their environmental impact and enjoying nature.

My Review:
 My son's are about to embark on their latest camping trip and this book seem to fit the bill so I was really excited when I got the chance to review it. This story is the sweetest and it is the perfect book to read to your child at bedtime or on your very own camp out.

 As Ellie and Pudgy set out on their adventure, they soon realize how much work goes into a trip such as this. They even mention my favorite treat of all time--s'mores. Ellie and Pudgy are two stuffed animals that go along on many new adventures and they share those with their readers.

 In their latest,  Ellie Camps Under the Stars they get a chance to camp out and see what nature has to offer them. Which turns out to be a lot. There are so many things to explore out there in the big world and these two friends intend on doing just that.

 My favorite thing about the book is the "I Spy" part of each picture. Before turning the page you are asked to find an object in the picture. My son loved reading this book. Great color photographs, as well!
