Are your little ones getting excited about school starting up soon? Maybe they’re a little nervous, too? Come hear Lee Zee, author and illustrator, read her award-winning picture book, Ellie’s Car Kindergarten, and laugh away those jitters! Lee will be at San Clemente’s own Beach Town Books on Saturday, July 27 at 3:30pm.
In Ellie’s Car Kindergarten, Ellie the stuffed elephant is afraid to spend her first day away from her little girl, Sammie, who is starting kindergarten. Until she finds out that she gets her very own kindergarten in the mama’s car!
Lee will be joined by the “real” Ellie (the stuffed elephant who is the model, inspiration, and official spokes-elephant for the book). Kids are welcome to bring their favorite stuffed animal from home to meet Ellie, and if their stuffed animal is also a little nervous about staying home while the kids are at school, Ellie can whisper words of comfort and encouragement in their ears. Ellie even helps “sign” purchased books! Ellie’s Car Kindergarten is also available in a Spanish / English bilingual version.
