Mo Willems fans will rejoice about this brand new beginning reader series that is very much Elephant & Piggie Like Reading as created by Mo Willems. My kids and I were thrilled to have a sneak peek at these new easy reader stories. Full of fun pictures and easy conversational dialogue my kids loved both new books we sampled. The first two books in the #EPLR series hit shelves September 20th: We are Growing and Cookie Fiasco.
ELEPHANT & PIGGIE LIKE READING
Best friends Elephant and Piggie introduce kids to their favorite books – brought to life in original stories created by contemporary children’s book authors and illustrators. Each 64-page beginning reader delivers a high quality reading experience that speaks to kids’ interests and abilities through stories that are fun and funny. The defining dialogue-driven format, established in the Elephant & Piggie series, unifies the collection with an active, participatory storytelling style that fans love. Plus, each book contains all-new Elephant & Piggie story bumpers!
WE ARE GROWING Synopsis
By award-winning author and illustrator Laurie Keller: In Stores September 20th
Growing up isn’t always the EASIEST
Walt and his friends are growing up fast! Everyone is the something-est. But . . . what about Walt? He is not the tallest, or the curliest, or the silliest. He is not the anything-est! As a BIG surprise inches closer, Walt discovers something special of his own!
Here’s a photo from the book
COOKIE FIASCO Synopsis
By Caldecott Award winner Dan Santat: In Stores September 20th
Four Friends. Three Cookies. One Problem.
Hippo, Croc, and the Squirrels are determined to have equal cookies for all! But how? There are only three cookies . . . And four of them. . . What’s more, they need to act fast before nervous Hippo breaks all the cookies into crumbs!
Doesn’t the book look fun?
