Where's Ellie? (The Infinite Loop)

What's more fun than a periwinkle pachyderm?
Playing hide-and-seek with a periwinkle pachyderm!
Salina Yoon has created another fun book for the under 5 set: Where's Ellie?  This little board book will have you reading, talking and playing with your child as the two of you  move through this colorful, bright world.  Together you can help a little ladybug find her friend Ellie.  It's not as easy as it sounds.  Is that Ellie hiding behind the plant?  No, it's just a teapot!  How about behind the cactus or the flowers?  Not there either.  Naturally, Ellie is hiding behind something much larger.  (I don't want to give it away but it starts with a "tuh" and ends with a "ree.")  Fair warning though, the book ends with the line, "Let's play again," and your child will most likely want to!
Although as adults re-reading the same board book or picture book can quickly become tedious, reading the same book over and over helps your child to develop early literacy skills.  Becoming familiar with the story allows them to predict what will happen next and helps them to engage more fully in the reading process.  Pretty soon, you can take a break and ask your child to read the story to you.
When you're ready for more reading fun, bring your child to one of our storytime programs and see what other fun books you can discover.
