My daughter and I recently finished reading Ellie Ultra: Superhero for President. The two of us adore Ellie and found ourselves cheering aloud at the end! She’s smart, caring, brave and a rather super superhero. What makes her most super, in my mama opinion, are her most human like characteristics such as her ability to make mistakes. Even heroes make them, but they learn from them and fight to make things right. This is what happens when it comes time for Ellie to save her school after things go awry during her run for Class President. Ellie finds a way to make things right.
Author Gina Bellisario manages to make this story relatable, action packed and often humorous. Fun illustrations by Jessika von Innerebner are sprinkled throughout making this book enjoyable for all ages.
Ellie shows readers that all of us have the power to make a difference, and with ease her story helps to facilitate a conversation about the ways we can. One superhero power present in all of us when the opportunity presents itself is voting! As Ellie says: “How else can you fight for life, liberty and the pursuit of more story time?”
Yes to more story time!
In the final pages is a glossary, some talking points such as what makes a good leader and activities for readers. This book is an awesome early chapter book (ages 6-8) and made for a great read aloud. Thank you Gina for gifting us a copy of your book and for teaming up with us for this super giveaway!
