Thank you Mr. Edwards💜💗💙💚
Ellie the Elephant: An Enchanting, Encouraging Audiobook
Ellie The Elephant, is a delightful story that not only entertains but has an important life lesson for listeners of all ages.
This bedtime tale, the second in a series of stories with moral from Heidie Stanton-Sharpe’s The CanDoPuppet Company recounts the tale of Ellie the Elephant as she searches through Paris for her lost pink beret. Ellie’s adventure is augmented with a catchy, singable tune that recounts the action. Each stanza represents a stop where Ellie makes new friends and acquires new, colorful gifts. Sadly, however, none of them are the beloved pink beret, which eludes her through the end of the story.
While this may sound like a disappointing end for a children’s tale, Ellie’s story ultimately provides an unexpected twist and an important, even sophisticated life-lesson about appreciating all you have instead of focusing on what you don’t. Ellie culminates with the song,“Attitude of Gratitude” which delivers the story’s lessen. Some listeners will recognize Haben Abraham, the sweetheart of America’s Got Talent, season 4, as the voice of Ellie.
A charming and positive counterpoint to superheroes and transforming robots, Ellie the Elephant isn't just a tale parents can feel good about sharing with their children, it’s one they’ll find themselves singing along with, too!
