My Thoughts

Ellie the elephant and her friend Pudgy the penguin were a little nervous at first but ended up having a great adventure on their first day of school.  So many new things to learn about like shapes, reading and much more.  In class there was a live bunny rabbit and a gecko.  They even had gym class, visit to the library and recess.  At recess they even made new friends. Then at the end of the day they rode a big yellow bus home from school.  

I was completely exhausted after reading about their first day at school.  I wonder if they needed a nap when they got home or if they were still full of energy.  It has been a long time since I was small and going to school I forgot how many exciting things there are to do in one day of school.  

It was indeed a real adventure reading "Ellie Goes Back To School".  Can't wait to read about her other adventures. 

I liked the illustrations. It was like looking through a scrapbook of Ellie and Pudgy on there first day of school. So very cute!  Who doesn't love stuffed animals?

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
