Elly Book 11 is a charming new universal title in the series of Elly the Reindeer books that my son and I enjoy together.
Elly Book 11 is focused on Elly and the gang as they prepare to go camping. My son really enjoys this story as he does the others, listening intently as Elly prepares for her trip, packing her bags and meeting up with her friends as they start on their walk to Feelgood Forest where they set up camp.
I have always appreciated the structure found within these apps, as Elly is often seen preparing for her outings, always having a course of action as well as organizing among her friends what they need to bring on their adventures – here, fun, thoughtful and practical choices such as food, guitar, and camping stove.
Elly Books have a lovingly simple look to them that children will appreciate as well as adults. Elly is an charming and relatable character for my son who has enjoyed all of these titles, always asking for multiples of these stories every time.
Elly Book 11 as well as the other stories include mild interactive hot spots that children can interact with by using a tap at the corner of many of these pages – an intuitive placement for the youngest readers who may have problems finding these interactions if hidden within the pages.
For the first time, Book 11 includes animated moments as well as the simple sounds found in the other Elly Books – moments perfect for babies’ first interactions as well as a nice treat for my seasoned app user.
Another aspect I have enjoyed with these books is the use of very age-appropriate suspense that Elly and her friends experience, always ending well for all. Here, Elly hears some strange noises in the woods that need to be investigated – a moment my son and I enjoy – as well as the conclusion of this moment.
It is lovely that one has a chance to listen to very nice narration, yet my son has always enjoyed listening to me read these books to him – a request that I am always happy to fulfill as I enjoy reading these books out loud myself. They are simple and sweet, fun and always short enough to read a few before bed. Someday soon my son will be reading on his own, and these books will be perfect early readers for him.
The characters from these Elly series include animals such as a reindeer, hare, or owl but they are utterly real in their personalities and wonderful for preschoolers and younger children who can learn a lot from their lovely social interactions.
