"Ella the Elegant Elephant" is a wonderfully whimsical story written in perfect harmony with the times we live in.

A story about an elephant, new to town, shy, and nervous facing a bully, trying to do what is right. With the help of a gift from her Grandmother, Ella stands firm and faces her bully, Belinda, head on. As we follow Ella through the story, we feel her insecurity and concern over her ability to deal with the uninvited bullying. We see others laugh and turn against her when she tries to remain strong.

In the end, it is the bully who needs help. And while those that snickered at Ella when she was being taunted and teased, making fun of the gift that her Grandmother gave her that meant so much to Ella, stood by and watched, Ella went above and beyond and used her special gift to save Belinda the bully from harm.

My 3 and 4 year old daughters have read this book at least 20 times since receiving it two days ago. It is a clear winner in our house. And when my 4 year old takes it and "reads" it to my 3 and 1 year old daughters, she clearly explains the story and how being mean to others is not nice. She tells them that having a unique gift does not make you different, but special. I have even caught them running to grab their own hats that their Grandmother gave them!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has or knows children in preschool or school. It is a great conversation opener about bullying and how to handle it. The message is clear and the presentation is wonderful!
