For Christmas, each of my kids received new books. My youngest loves the Elephant and Piggie books written by Mo Willems. Mo Willems books are easy to read, funny, and help young readers hone their reading skills and cultivate a love for stories. The books are great for readers at first through third-grade reading levels. Each book includes incredibly fun artwork, and at the end of each story, there is a hidden pigeon character that the kids always love to try to find.
The book is a short read, perfect for early readers, and in many schools can count towards independent or AR reading work. Be sure to check out Mo Willems' other amazing books from the Elephant and Piggie series.
