We love Elephant & Piggie at my house, and were so excited to partner with Disney-Hyperion on a sponsored post to celebrate Elephant & Piggie 10 Years of Fun! All thoughts and opinions are our own.
At my house, we look for reasons to throw a party. Even if it is just a small family party, I can’t think of a good excuse not to pull out the streamers and snacks…maybe a few balloons! When Disney-Hyperion asked us to throw a party to celebrate 10 years of Elephant & Piggie books we were all in!
Right now is also a fun time to celebrate Elephant & Piggie because there is a new book in the Elephant and Piggie Like Reading! Series, The Good for Nothing Button by Charise Mericle Harper. Perfect for readers ages 4-8.
Yellow Bird has a button. It does . . . nothing! It is a good for nothing button.
Red Bird and Blue Bird are excited to try the button. But when they press it, they discover that the button makes them happy. Happy is something! A flabbergasted Yellow Bird insists the button does nothing. But it sure does seem to be making him mad. Mad is something!
The hilarious debate that follows takes readers on an emotional roller coaster that pokes at the power of imaginative play.
This is such a fun addition to the other Books in the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! Series:
- The Cookie Fiasco by Dan Santat (2016)
- We Are Growing! By Laurie Keller (2016)
I had the best time setting up for this party, mostly because these Elephant & Piggie lanterns are just too cute for words! Plus they are super easy to make. You can find the directions to make your own in the download below. There are also downloadable Elephant & Piggie Activity Sheets for you to have some fun during your party or just print them out for some everyday fun!
