Happy Friday everyone! Today I want to highlight Ellie, written and illustrated by Mike Wu. This book is such a cute story and the illustrations are sure to delight your little ones. Ellie is an elephant who lives in a dull, gray zoo that is about to close. Ellie and her animal friends try to improve the zoo, but Ellie isn’t sure how she can help. She finds a unique tool and starts using it, and we watch her discover her love, and extreme talent for painting. Can her talent be enough to save the day? Spoiler alert, it has a happy ending! I highly recommend this cute gentle story, it won’t disappoint!
