Ellie lives in Charleroi, Pennsylvania, where she is a crossing guard for Charleroi Elementary School. She is married to Norman and has four children – Jon, Debbie, David, and Sheila. Ellie enjoys doing crossword puzzles in her spare time. This is her first published book, and she was inspired to writeBengal and Sengal from her love of tigers.


 I really enjoyed reading this short story! The story has many different characters in it, but I NEVER got them mixed up. The character I enjoyed the most is Sengal because I think my personality is more like his then Bengal. I liked how the author wrote the story with simple words for a young child would be able to read it easily, but with a few challenges. My favorite part is at the very end of the story, the happy every after part. If you want to see for your self you will have to read the book! 

I received a free copy of this book from Dorrance Publishing for review purposes. All opinions expressed are always entirely my own.

My Opinion: 

I was very surprised to fine that it was NOT filled with verses or pushing Christianity, like a lot of books do. Also, It was down to earth, without it being filled with medical jumbo. It’s an personal experience of her pregnancy. She tells you that you MAY or MAY NOT have the problems that she did and that she is not experienced in any type of medical, just a mother who have went through pregnancies.  I am defiantly keeping this book close during my pregnancy and will be recommending this book to others.
