Ella The Elegant Elephant by Carmela D'amico,Ella's counting the days until the first day of school ... but not because she's eager to start! On the contrary, as the littlest elephant on Elephant Island, she's terribly nervous about the other kids she'll meet. Then she receives a beautiful red hat that belonged to her grandmother -- her new lucky charm. Big mean Belinda at school teases her for it, calling her "Ella the Elegant Elephant."
"Ella the Elegant Elephant" by Carmela and Steven D'Amico. Really delightful illustrations of a fanciful elephant world set in islands with a Mediterranean feel. We read this to our kids, but loved every bit of it as adults. Kids will like the blend of familiar problems (new kid, standing out, problems, courage, friendship) and the fanciful and fun solution. Among other things the illustrations remind us of a blend of Curious George and Babar. Definitely looking for more by the D'Amicos.

I will deffinately try to check out more books with this illustrators art work ~ Lovely! The story line was sad but maybe that would be comforting for a child who has recently become separated from a close friend because of a move. We have not gone through this, I checked it out from the library only because it was about moving and we hope to move into a different home later this year. Mixed feelings about this book but loved the art.
What is a picture book? Half a world away by Libby Gleeson. An ideal book for friends separated by a move, this is the unforgettable story of a friendship lost and found.
