My Review
So this was an spectacular children s book! The day we got it in, my youngest took it and sat on the floor looking at it for a very long time. The pictures were so amazing. They were so well drawn and the colors just jumped off the page.
 I loved the lesson behind the story. It is one that I deal with daily with my children. Ella loves all her toys but does not want to share. She then keeps all her toys away from all the other kids. The other children decide to go play on their own. Ella than becomes sad that no one is playing with her. It teaches kids that it is fun to have toys but even more fun to share with other kids.
All my boys loved how Ella shared. They were sad when Ella was sad that she has no friends. It opened up a great talking opportunity. We talked about how its fun to get new toys but even more fun to share with our friends.
