Elle and Lou is a beautiful story that teaches children about diversity, teamwork, and friendship. It is beautifully illustrated with lots of colours and details. The author, Kiana Sosa, did an amazing job describing the characters and their emotions. Definitely one of our favorite children’s books.
I am so impressed with this book! The writing is great and it explains clearly how to be a kind and caring friend with great examples. The illustrations are beautiful as well. A very well-executed book. I love the author’s note at the end! I can’t wait to read more books from this promising young writer.
