We love reading at our house. My kids have collections of books that were mine when I was little, and now they have little collections that I am sure will be passed down to their kids eventually. Audrey, my youngest, loves Mo Willems books. She has loved them since preschool when she fell in love with Pigeon. When DisneyBooks contacted me and offered to be a Mo Willems Ambassador I couldn’t pass it up!
ABOUT MO WILLEMS
Mo Willems (www.pigeonpresents.com), a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, has been awarded a Caldecott Honor on three occasions, for Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity. The celebrated Elephant & Piggie early-reader series has been awarded the Theodor Seuss Geisel Medal on two occasions (for There Is a Bird on Your Head! and Are You Ready to Play Outside?) as well as garnering five Geisel Honors (for We Are in a Book!, I Broke My Trunk!, Let’s Go for a Drive!, A Big Guy Took My Ball! and Waiting Is Not Easy!).
There is a new Mo Willems Book on the block! THE THANK YOU BOOK hit stores May 3rd!
Gerald is careful. Piggie is not.
Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.
Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to.
Gerald and Piggie are best friends.
In The Thank You Book!, Piggie wants to thank EVERYONE. But Gerald is worried Piggie will forget someone . . . someone important.
This is a great book to teach kids the value of appreciating everyone in their lives, and letting them know that they are important!
Audrey was inspired by the book. She put on her new Mo Willems shirt and filled out her #ThankORama sign. She even convinced her brother to do it to. That is love! 🙂 You can print out these fun #ThankORama signs for your family too!
