Yesterday, amongst the sound of the locust, we had a little party. It was a small party that represented two very important characters in they boys reading lives. These two little fellas are celebrating 10 years of existence and we made sure to celebrate them “reading style”. Happy 10 Years Elephant & Piggie!
This duo has been a fan favorite, especially when first learning how to read. The Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! series has been great for Davis. The recently added a new book to the line up that is hilarious and catchy to read, The Good for Nothing Button. Davis gets a kick out of this book as well as the button that was sent our way (who do I thank for that?!). But truly, if you have a new reader in your home make sure you check out: We Are Growing and The Cookie Fiasco as well. All of the books in the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! series will inspire beginning readers to practice, practice, practice!

Overall, it was a fun day of reading in the sunshine on the swing. What more could a little boy or girl ask for? Let’s be honest, what more could any of us ask for than a lazy day outdoors with a good book.
