The obsession with Elephant and Piggie , best friends who star in a series of books by Sesame Street veteran and Pigeon provider Mo Willems, runs deep in my household. To give you an idea:. But mostly because Willems has managed to write beginning reader books that are snappy, fun, and best of all, funny. Legit funny. Here are my 10 favorite moments in the series, not that you can really go wrong.
I highly recommend all of the Elephant and Piggie books. They are fun, easy to navigate, and have no superfluous words or details in the illustrations , making it easy for new readers to focus on what's important and to enjoy the reading experience. They also stress the value of friendship and getting along with others. The Elephant and Piggie books are fun to read aloud to younger children who love the funny stories about the two friends. I recommend the books for ages and especially beginning readers from years old.
Either way, I have some hard news. This series is coming to an end. But the good news is that the final book, The Thank You Book is a gem. If you love this series as much as I do and boy do I love it! But I admit I had a hard time reading the final few pages. The speech bubbles used for the dialog help break down the stories into predictable language for new readers.
