About the Book: Ellis the Elephant is back, and he’s headed to the White House! In Hail to the Chief, the sixth in Callista Gingrich’s New York Times bestselling series, Ellis meets some of America’s greatest presidents and discovers how they have led our country throughout American history.

In preceding books, including Sweet Land of Liberty, Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride, Yankee Doodle Dandy, From Sea to Shining Sea, and Christmas in America, Ellis learns about the pivotal moments that have shaped our nation.

  • Grade Level: Preschool – 4
  • Series: Ellis the Elephant
  • Hardcover: 40 pages
  • Publisher: Regnery Kids (October 11, 2016)

My Review: Ellis the Elephant goes back in time to learn about how the past US presidents governed a vast nation. Learning about how George Washington led the Revolutionary War and sworn in as the first president, pledging to serve and defend freedom. Ellis also learn about Thomas Jefferson the founding father who wrote the declaration of independence. James Madison known as the father of the Constitution.  Ellis learned about Andrew Jackson known as a war hero, Abraham Lincoln known as the president who presided over a nation that was in crisis and divided by the fighting over slavery. Theodore Roosevelt who preserved the best lands by setting aside millions of acres of lands.  Ellis went on to learn about many more presidents and their achievements. From George Washington to Barack Obama, he learned how each of them accepted a great responsibility, and done the job to the best of their ability.

What a great way for children and adults to learn about the past and present American presidents and their achievements. The last few pages of the book gives a list of all the US presidents, the year they governed and short history. The illustrations by Susan Arciero are vibrant, bold and colorful which helps sell the story.

Hail to the Chief is a part of the bestselling Ellis the Elephant series.

Princess Nadia and the Search for the Missing Treasure by Tony Samuel

 

About the Book: Princess Nadia continues her adventure on the high seas by searching for the treasure of Captain James Joker Jib. One surprise leads to another as Princess Nadia and her team learns the real truth of the missing treasure.

My Review: Princess Nadia is back and this time she brought her friends Lenny the Lion, Ellen the Elephant, Tiny Tiger and her best friend Freddy Finch the bird for another adventure. Princess Nadia who dreamed of finding missing treasure was transported while dreaming to the deserted island of Zulantia,

Their quest was to find out what happened to the disappearance of Captain James Joker Jib, known as Captain 3J’s treasure. On their path, they came across talking trees telling them that the treasure of Captain 3J can not be removed. But all Princess Nadia and her friends wanted to do was to find the missing treasure and share it with the world. When they finally found the treasure,  what was inside blew their mind. Was it gold or something magical? You will have to buy a copy to find out.

If your child loves reading adventures then this book is for them. The illustrations  are bold and colorful which helps tell the story. And easy to read for kids of all ages. It will also make a great bedtime story.
