Editorial Reviews

While this book is simplistic for a native speaker, this book would be amazing for children who are English Language Learners. They will connect with the character who moved away and learn vocabulary for places around town. They will also learn the names of community helpers associated with the town places. Children will also learn the concepts of left and right.

The Book

Eve, an adorable baby elephant, has recently moved to a new town and misses her best friend Ellie.  She decides to write Ellie a letter and then must find the local post office to mail it.  Unaccustomed to the layout of the town she relies on the locals to direct her to her designated destination.  

She receives guidance from a fireman, policeman, dentist, doctor and teacher, just to name a few.  They all are happy to give her proper directions and show her kindness in doing so.   She posts her letter and is very grateful to discover where the post office is located in case she writes more letters to her friend. 

This book teaches about the concepts of left and right, various buildings around the neighbourhood and the people that work in them.  The rhyming text encourages children to notice and work with the sounds within words.  They will enjoy the rhymn of language and learn to read with expression and understanding.  Children will have better phonemic awareness with exposure to rhymes and poetry.  The book is relatable and is perfect for the targeted age group, ESL ( English as a Second Language) and EFL ( English as a Foreign Language ) children.  The illustration are colourful and the animal characters are endearing.  I recommend this book.
