So many new things to learn about like shapes, reading and much more. In class there was a live bunny rabbit and a gecko. They even had gym class, visit to the library and recess. At recess they even made new friends. Then at the end of the day they rode a big yellow bus home from school.
I was completely exhausted after reading about their first day at school. I wonder if they needed a nap when they got home or if they were still full of energy. It has been a long time since I was small and going to school I forgot how many exciting things there are to do in one day of school.
It was indeed a real adventure reading "Ellie Goes Back To School". Can't wait to read about her other adventures.
I liked the illustrations. It was like looking through a scrapbook of Ellie and Pudgy on there first day of school. So very cute! Who doesn't love stuffed animals?
I highly recommend this book.
I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Sammy and Lisa have been together since they first laid eyes on each other at the pet store where Sammy was with her mother and siblings. It was love at first sight and maybe the beautiful way Sammy sang to Lisa.
One night after the two of them watched a talent show on television Sammy got a brilliant idea to enter the Talent Show at the Sydney Opera House. But he did not tell Lisa. In fact Sammy decided to get some of his Dove bird friends to help him find his way to the talent show.
Me being a grandmother I don't think this was such a brilliant idea! How about you? What would Lisa think of Sammy leaving his cage and the safety of the apartment? After all he has never flewn outdoors much less with any of his friends. But he was so excited and just knew he had the talent to win. No doubt he wanted to surprise Lisa.
The author has given us a good lesson to be learned. Think before you act. In my opinion if Sammy was keeping it a secret from Lisa then he must have known deep down that it was not a good idea. Or did he?
You will fall Iin love with Sammy as much as I have or more. Maybe you connect with this story as you remember one of your own bird brain ideas!
The illustrations depict the story so well and will stir everyones imagination into this wild and crazy bird brain adventure with Sammy.
I have read this book before but this time I read it with a whole new perspective.
I highly recommend this book.

Jake had some brilliant ideas for organizing his things that ended up overwhelming his good intentions. Thankfully his family and friends knew Jake meant well and was not just being mischievous.
Just reading the story I became overwhelmed for poor little Jake! With some children a few suggestions and overseeing the project with patience seems to be the key. Making it fun using some of their ideas meets with rewarding success!
From my own experience I especially found sorting through the childs clothes and toys while they were at school, boxing the stuff up for donations was of great help in cutting down a stressful situition. This kept my children from having to make monumental decisions. They never even seemed to notice anything was missing. If they did notice I simply explained why it was donated or discarded.
My children are now wonderful parents with children of their own!Great book in which I am sure most children and parents will connect. Good story to read with your kids and share ideas and past experiences. Be sure to make it fun and not accusatory.
I recommend this book!
I rated this book a 4 out of 5. Mainly due to the fact it was somewhat overwhelming.
