Elly and the Smelly Sneakers - (Would you choose Sneakers or Slippers?)

Not all little girls want to wear dresses and play princess, I am learning that these days!  Savannah will just as soon grab her brothers cars, trains and army men to play with as fast as she will play with her barbies or dolls.  I don't force either on her and figure she can play with whatever makes her happy.  Another cute book arrived for us to review from Sterling Publishing and it keeps on with that theme for us. In a different take on the Cinderella Story we know, this one is opposite.  Elly and the Smelly Sneakers has us meet Elly...

Like I said,  Elly and the Smelly Sneakers by Leslie Gorin is a tale totally opposite of another "princess" we love.  I personally love Elly as she doesn't want to be just like all the others and wants to really be herself.  (Yes, this is a trait I really hope Savannah and Broxton both have... Always!)
I will say, every little girl deserves to be treated like  Princess.  If they want to live that life all the time in fancy clothes and tea time, more power to them.  If they want to play ball and climb trees, let them do that.  Hey, they might even want to do both!!!

So, let me tell you about this story.
Elly has it all.  Cute clothes, manners lessons and so much more.  The thing is, she just wants to play with the kids outside.  They laugh and run and even play BASEBALL.  Next thing you know, her fairy godmother shows up.  (Well, her substitute fairy godmother, her's was busy!  Ha! Ha! Ha!!!) Will she get a wish and be able to play ball, or will she always be there looking out???  You will need to read the book to see what happens next!  Can you guess???

What would you be more comfortable in ? Sneakers or Slippers?  


  1. Sneakers for sure would be more comfortable to me. I like the scroll page.

  2. I love the new look of your blog! My daughter was one who wore dresses and played with dolls for a bit. It wasn't long though until she was putting frogs in her doll baby carriers (eek) and catching bugs for fun (sigh). I have three boys, so I was hoping she'd be more traditional princess, but guess what? It turned out okay, and I love her to the moon and back anyway (of course). Phooey to tradition if your kiddo doesn't like it. The book sounds great!

  3. I hope Broxton has fun at his new school! I'm sure Savannah will enjoy being around other kiddos. It will be an adjustment for all of you though.
