What’s better than a book by the beloved Mo Willems? A BIG book of Mo Willems’ stories! And young readers will not be disappointed when parents hand them An Elephant and Piggie Biggie! It includes five Elephant & Piggie classics (but really, what Willems book isn’t a classic) that can be read in one sitting or over a course of several story times.
‘Do you know the secret to throwing? Sure. “Have fun.”‘
Willems writes entertaining rhyming text that is perfect for beginning readers and his illustrations are heart-warming and instantly recognizable as his own. This is a big, well-made book; the binding is going to last through many readings. The only downside is that the thickness of the book might be difficult for little hands to grasp. I think this is a must-have for a child’s home library.
