    Review:

    Miss Grace due to her school schedule had not been able to catch any of the Ella episodes, so she was quite interested to check out this DVD literally the minute it came in! She was clued to it, and only took time out for dinner! It is an adorable series, that helps to teach some very important lessons. Miss Grace loved ALL the episodes. Check out a sample from one of her favorite episodes:

    Tea Party Trouble”





    Adorable, isn't she? This is a lovely set of videos, perfect for gift giving any time of the year! Remember Christmas is ONLY 100 days away (you can go scream now if you'd like), and this DVD would be a lovely gift for the young child in your life. We highly recommend it!
