When it comes to inspirational short stories for children, books starring Ella The Enchanted Princess offer a source of connection for children who may look or act differently from their peers. Ella was born without hair, and she often struggles with her confidence and self-image.


In The Ugly Christmas Tree, the focus is not on Ella but on Joey The Ugly Christmas Tree. This truly beautiful and inspirational short story touches on bullying.  In children's fairy tales there is always one character that gets bullied. You would think that Ella would be the one to be bullied because she has no hair. But the bullying happens in the Christmas Tree Forest.

Ella overcomes her fears and grows her self-confidence in this inspirational short story so she can give Joey the ability to do the same.  In this inspirational short story, we have a very excited Princess Ella that sets out to find her perfect Christmas tree but instead meets the horrible bullies that torture Joey the tiniest

tree in the forest.  Ella learns that being majestic and beautiful really doesn't matter.  A kind heart and being friendly helps Ella pick Joey to be her perfect tree.  


This tale on bullying is all too familiar for young boys and girls who worry about what others may say about their appearance. If your child, or the child of a loved one, looks or acts differently from other kids their age, teaching them about Ella The Enchanted Princess is a great way to help them understand that they are just as valued and special as other children. It's essential for young kids to have role models they feel a connection with, and Ella is a wonderful example of how it's ok (and even great!) to be different from others. When you give the gift of Ella, you're giving the gift of self-confidence.
