Welcome to another week of What My Children Are Reading. I apologize for missing last week. It was one of those weeks, but this week I'd like to share some Mo Willems books my daughter and I are reading.
When my daughter was first born, I went a little crazy with buying books for her. Then I had to make myself only buy books that we absolutely loved. Well, Mo Willems' Elephant Gerald and Piggie are books we absolutely love, and we just added three new ones to our in-home library.
Elephants Cannot Dance! is the newest book in the series, just released in June. In this book, Piggie is clad in a tutu and tries to teach Gerald how to dance. As is common with this series of books, Gerald teaches Piggie an important lesson about things not always having to be perfect. I'm consistently amazed at how Mo Willems continues to keep these books simple, funny, kid- AND parent-friendly, and fresh.
Are You Ready to Play Outside? and Watch Me Throw the Ball! were both books that we checked out from the library over and over again, so I decided to buy these two as well to add to our collection. We've read each of these nightly since I bought them over the weekend.
