Mo Willems Inspires Kids to Say Thanks with his new book #Thankorama #Giveaway

It’s time to THANK everyone! Mo Willems new book is a celebration of THANK YOUS! On sale now, Mo Willems just released the final book in his beloved Elephant & Piggie series, The Thank You Book. The Thank You Book is super cute, silly, and easy to read! I’m a huge fan of all of Mo Willems books and so are my kids.

TheThankYouBook Mo has declared this May to be “THANKORAMA” month to inspire readers to say THANK YOU to someone special in their lives. Love this idea! Get connected to all this THANKORAMA goodness on the website here.

  We find his thought bubble writing style and the crazy antics of his characters make his stories great for kids of all ages. His books are wonderful book to read to preschoolers , the perfect books for kids to gain confidence reading to themselves as early readers, and just hilarious fun for all of us advanced readers at any age.

Elephant and Piggie inspired the kids and I to put together cute care packages full of pretty flowers for their teachers last week for Teacher Appreciation Day. Saying THANKS feels good to both the recipient and those expressing gratitude!
