Ella is excited for her first day at a new school.

Glimmering pencil case? Check!

Shimmering backpack? Check!Glittery ribbons in her hair? Check!

She can’t wait to meet the other kids and share her sparkly personality. But her first day doesn’t go quite as planned: Her new classmates don’t like her disco-ball shoes, her PB&J-with-sprinkles sandwich, or her rainbow-y unicorn painting.

Ella decides to try to be less sparkly at school the next day so the other kids won’t make fun of her. But with a little help from her dad, she soon learns the importance of just being herself, no matter what other people say.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Channing Tatum writes a kids book, you know I’m in top of that! I think that Sparkella will resonate with every little girl out there. Who doesn’t love glitter and everything sparkly? The message of the book is to be yourself, even if you are different from everyone else. If you try and change to make people happy you’ll end up miserable. The support that Ella’s dad shows her is amazing – especially when he shows up to school dressed in glittery outfits. The illustrations are spot on and gorgeous. Definitely going to want to check this one out!
