It’s no secret; I’m a big fan of the book Little Elliot, Big City. I reviewed it HERE and also revealed some cover art from the upcoming book, Little Elliot, Big Family HERE. I love this little elephant and his kind nature. I was beyond excited to find that Merry Maker’s released Little Elliot stuffed animals. (HERE) I will absolutely be purchasing one for my classroom and one for my niece. They are adorable.
All of this is to say, I got really excited when the folks at Live In A Story (website HERE) contacted me. They have wall decals that are taken right off the pages of our favorite picture books. What??? They wondered if I’d like to preview what they have for Little Elliot. Sign me up.
Just a few days later, Elliot arrived. I opened the package with anticipation, unrolled it, and there he was. I immediately knew where I wanted to put him in my classroom.
We start school in just over a week, so I’ve been in the classroom quite a bit. There is a spot in our classroom meeting area that I used to use for lunch count, but now was bare. It is on a white board, just to the right of our Interactive whiteboard. I put Elliot there thinking we could put speech bubbles or thought bubbles near him throughout the year.
There were also fun decals with cupcakes on them that I haven’t gotten the chance to put up yet, I think I’ll place them randomly on the board around Elliot.
The folks at Live in A Story wanted me to offer up one free Little Elliot wall decal along with a copy of Little Elliot, Big City to a reader of the blog. Would you like Elliot in your classroom or even your home? Fill in the Google Form below. The giveaway will be open from 8/7 through midnight on 8/10.
