We are GINORMOUS Mo Willems fans! Not just gigantic, GINORMOUS! My sons Ben and Henry collect his books and are so proud of their collection! We were first introduced to Mo Willems from my own mother (who is a reading specialist) and we all instantly fell in love with his writing style, his characters and his stories.
If you’re not familiar with Mo Willems (www.pigeonpresents.com), he’s a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, who 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. His 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!).
As you can tell, he’s quite the author!
I’m beyond excited to share that I’m going to be a Mo Willems Ambassador throughout the next couple of months! I’ll be sharing some fun information and giving away some awesome prizes! I’m not only excited about this, my kids are OVER THE MOON, too!
I’m super excited to share Mo Willems book with you – THE THANK YOU BOOK, which was in stores May 3rd!! What’s this one all about??
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.
May is THANK-O-RAMA MONTH!!! I love this because I’m able to teach my children the importance about saying THANK YOU to people. We read the book together and we had so much fun talking about Gerald and Piggie. I love that books can really create conversations at home and Mo Willems’ books know how to do this effortlessly! The Thank You Book is a book you need to pick up for your house!! We got a very cool Mo Mail package for the kids and my son and daughter LOVED playing and dressing up!!!
