Ella the Pink Elephant by Doris Rueger

Publisher:  Create Space
Source:  Review Copy in Exchange for my review
Genre:  Children, Picture Book
Pages:  40

From Publisher:
As a child, Ella was the star animal of one of the world's largest zoos. Her keepers dressed her in pink silks and shawls, while friends and admirers flocked to her side. Yet as all creatures must do, Ella grew older. She grew tired of all the work it took to remain at the center of everyone's attention. After many years, Ella wanted to be taken to a retirement zoo where she could rest and enjoy her days in peace.

My Thoughts:
When the book arrived my granddaughter immediately asked me to read it to her.  This is always a good sign as she loves books as much as I do.  She immediately got the message.  She loves the color pink as much as Ella does.  She understood that it doesn’t matter what you have on the outside, it’s what is on the inside that make people love you. This was a wonderful way to teach this lesson.  The story was wonderfully told and the drawings were beautiful.  I know two wonderful children who will love receiving these books.
