Ella Ella Francinella is a book series written by Barbara Campbell MA CSD (Certified Spiritual Director), and illustrated by David-Peter Campbell which is finding it’s niche in the faith-based children’s book industry with mainstream crossover appeal.
What is Ella Ella Francinella?
Through the eyes of Ella Ella Francinella and her family, Barbara Campbell will speak to children and their parents about life lessons important to all of us. Ella Ella Francinella is part of a close-knit family from Long Island, New York that enjoys many special times together, most importantly, Sunday Dinner! Ella and her family find themselves in certain circumstances where the need for a little guidance, or Spirit, would make all the difference. Although not overtly religious, Ella Ella Francinella always brings the story to a conclusion involving a faith-guided action.
Ella helps children learn important lessons and problem solving strategies with a faith-based twist, based on Barbara’s many years of psychological counseling. Barbara uses multiple media channels such as a diary blog with weekly inspirations called “Ellagrams”. These are written for children in an engaging and developmentally appropriate manner and are both timely and relevant to the reader. The Ellagrams become a digital pulpit spreading the message of the Spirit to the children.
Bootie here. I woke up an hour ago and Grandma Goo was dancing to “happy”on loop. Luckily, we had Mikey to the Rescue! My dad just got out of the shower and I’m sitting at the table next to the window in the living room watching my dad draw a picture of Michael the Archangel and this is the third time I’m actually writing in my journal…
Bootie here, I’m back. I just had lunch and dad and I are going to play a few games on the PS4. Hopefully, Lizzie and Ella don’t complain about the country plumbing.
All of the mountains upstate are covered with red and orange trees. Ella is talking about how she hates everyone cause there’s no wifi up here. Uncle Quelstone of Hamington says that’s because this is a country house…
So its breakfast time again and pretty much everyone is still asleep except me and Grandpa Gooshey so we are going to have to find the brownies that Goo made for the square dance at church that nobody came to!…
Hey, it’s Bootie again. So just as I thought: Mr. Mouse did have the answer. He said the best way to patch up any heart-leaks and to remember the good things that happen to us is to give smiles to our friends who are sad and hugs to our friends who are mean…
Ella here. I found out why cake boxes have all those little tabs and flaps and random pieces of cardboard because when you take the cake out of the box it could get really mashed up if the box didn’t have all those moving parts.
Sam was the one who explained it to me…
