When Graham was first born I decided that reading to him was the best way to pass our days as I was alone just nursing him around the clock. It was near summer, so I have a plethora of books on hand that I had planned on reading for leisure. I ended up reading those novels out loud to him. Consequently, this kid has a voracious love for reading! Some of the first books we started reading together (kid-wise) were the Mo Willems books. They were so full of quirky lines and crisp artwork that drew his attention. Mo Willems also knows the value of repetition and how that impacts how a child learns.
So, when we found out that there was going to be a new and final Elephant and Piggie book coming out, we wanted to be a part of celebrating with Mo and all of his friends! This final book in the Elephant and Piggie series is The Thank You Book. If you are familiar with Gerald (Elephant) and Piggie then you know the personalities of the two. Gerald is always constant and cautious. Piggie is very much a free spirit who often acts before thinking. The two are the greatest of friends and always look out for one another.
The Thank You Book has readers thinking on one track. You just think you know where this book is going to take you, but in the end, there is such a sweet surprise. I promise that your heart will be warmed and there may even be a few tears. You just never know with Elephant and Piggie! What a bittersweet book while realizing that this will be it for the pair.
In honor of this final Mo Willems book, he is asking readers everywhere to join in a special #ThankoRama. Piggie was so great about thanking everyone he could think of and now it is our turn! Davis decided that he really wanted to thank his preschool teachers. This is his final year of preschool (I can’t believe it)! You should see the sweet little thank you notes he wrote to his teachers to deliver tomorrow. You can join in and download your very own “Thank You Speech Bubbles (pink or grey)” in order to share who you are thanking! Make sure you use #ThankoRama in your social media posts so that we can all see.
Now one lucky Go Grow Go reader will win a The Thank You Book prize pack which includes: Copy of The Thank You Book, Elephant & Piggie Event kit and Standee, and 2 Elephant & Piggie t-shirts. Here’s How:
