We love reading in this house and I was excited a couple months ago when I was chosen as a Mo Willems Ambassador! Your kids are probably familiar with Mo Willems characters like Elephant & Piggie!   They will be excited to know that there is A new beginning-reader series created by Mo Willems!

Best friends Elephant and Piggie introduce kids to their favorite books – brought to life in original stories created by contemporary children’s book authors and illustrators. Each 64-page beginning reader delivers a high quality reading experience that speaks to kids’ interests and abilities through stories that are fun and funny. The defining dialogue-driven format, established in the Elephant & Piggie series, unifies the collection with an active, participatory storytelling style that fans love. Plus, each book contains all-new Elephant & Piggie story bumpers!

  1. I love the Should I Share My Ice Cream? book. Thank you so much for the chance to win these amazing books!

  2. The Pigeon Needs a Bath is my favorite Mo Willems book. It is a great read aloud for the younger kids and you get to use a lot of expression in reading the book.

  3. My 7 year old reads the Pigeon books (Drives a Bus and Finds a Hot Dog) over and over again. Each time she reads she gets more and more loud and giggles! We love these books!
