Elfie Printable For Memoirs Of An Elf Story Time
We’re big fans of seasonal & holiday books at our house. We have so many books in the kids’ home library that I’m always happy to have a collection of books that we rotate in & out throughout the year. (Honestly, we’d run out of room on their shelves if I wasn’t able to pack some away 11 months out of the year!) Only bringing them out when the holiday is approaching also helps the books keep some of their ‘magic’. It gives us some old favorites to look forward to re-reading as we start feeling festive. This year, one of the books we are thrilled to pull out again is Memoirs Of An Elf.

READING MEMOIRS OF AN ELF
Memoirs Of An Elf was written by Devin Scillian and illustrated by Tim Bowers. The book was new to us last December. #thebigone enjoyed it many times through out the month before we packed up our Christmas books for the year. He’s a boy that really embraces technology. As a result, the idea of Santa’s elves snapping ‘elfies’ with cell phones delighted him. The illustrations are especially playful. There are expressive, impish faces on all the elves. Bright colors fill the pages. Perspective shifts at some points in the book, which keeps the story interesting and engaging for the reader.

After reading this favorite book again this year, we talked about how fun it would be to ride on Santa’s sleigh. We would definitely want to use our cell phone to snap some ‘elfies’. Using the free printable illustration I created to accompany the book, #thebigone drew how he would look as an elf. (Scroll down to grab your own ‘elfie’ printable!)
Honestly guys, I can’t lie at Christmas time. My kid said he would be an ‘attack elf’. #thebigone wouldn’t offer a lot of clarification on what that meant or what he would attack. I’m hoping it’s Grinches, Scrooges, and the like. His attack elf grin is kiiiiiind of the stuff of nightmares. But kids will be kids, and at least he’s using his imagination… Right?
