I love reading Mo Williams' blog. It's personal, child-oriented and full of his best thinking: http://mowillemsdoodles.blogspot.comIn Mo's latest Elephant and Piggie book, Gerald is careful. But Piggie is not. Piggie disrupts a perfectly day by telling Gerald he is going... but who will Gerald play ping-pong with and wear silly hats with?
Such simple text creates an amazingly complex story line in each and every one of these books. Elephant and Piggie have turned me into a Mo Williams fan. And, I have to be honest, that's something that Knuffle Bunny couldn't do! But, Elephant and Piggie are so endearing... I can't wait to add them all to my collection.
My students will love them (yes, I know they are third graders, but c'mon aren't they perfect to use during a study of drawing inferences?). And even if they don't, I'll have a good laugh or two!
