Our Sunday Storybook - The Dry-ventures of Ellie and Eddie - Happy Skin Holiday


This week we've been reading a book that we were sent from Aveeno.  It's the second in a trilogy about Ellie and Eddie, (see our review of the first here) about a little girl and her gecko with dry skin.  This one focuses on taking care of your skin whilst on holiday and is called Happy Skin Holiday, you can download it for free from their website here.

Ethan really enjoys the story (unfortunately Ivy still doesn't really sit still for proper stories, at least she does sit still when I put her cream on though!)  The family go camping and Ellie is worried about not remembering to put on her cream while they are away, but they have a little song that they sing and a way to remember when it's time to put it on.

It's a cute story, Ethan loves trying to find Eddie on every page and it helps to encourage him to put his cream on his dry skin.  We sometimes have a bit of a battle at bedtime when he's just too tired to put it on, but when we remind him of Ellie and Eddie he co-operates.  This book comes at a great time for anyone who went on holidays over Easter, we have a holiday coming up in a few weeks and we'll definitely be bringing it along with us to remind Ethan about his cream.  And we'll definitely remember to bring enough of their cream with us, unlike our recent trip to South Africa when we just assumed that we could buy Aveeno and couldn't find it anywhere.  Next time I will be better prepared!
