   Soo cute!
This is definitely one of my most favorite Elephant and Piggie books of all time, probably one of my favorite children's books of all time. These poor children, I can't read it without laughing! Sometimes I'll read this one all on my own after the kids have fallen asleep. It's to practice reading it without even thinking about it. Trust me, Mr. Dhaliwal, that is just an excuse! We're talking about real elephant and pig addiction here! It is helpful and does not pose safety problems, so have no fear!
He was given a book by his mom as a present when he was 3. And he loved it, and laughed at the silly faces that Elephant would make. I bought him more books, and he really likes them all. Even now, I'm still a huge Mo Williams fan. Ask me to read them all, Mr. Rule told me. It's just that time of the year again. I recommend that readers pick up these two books by Janie Bryant: "They are very well written and very cute stories." The pictures are clear and the captions are also very cute. He has so many expressions and what he says makes my son laugh every time. Im using these books now to help him read and he is reading well. Highly recommend.
   Perfect for a 5 year old learning to read.
My daughter absolutely loves reading them and acting out the characters. Great books for kids learning to read, preschool kids, and any kid who loves to read with their parents!
   Very engaging and a great teaching tool
This is a great series. My granddaughters have giggled through these books and we've discussed what the characters learned. Through repetition, Tjey practice making the expressions of the characters and the relationships between them. Even before she could read, she would wait for the one-to-one part she had memorized with enthusiasm. Great tool, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
   Hilarious books
We love them both, said Williams. My 6 year old has absolutely devoured them all. It's great to keep kids excited about reading a book at bedtime.
   Piggy and Elephant are AWESOME!!
I've had a lot of fun with Piggy and the Elephant books. I'm a preschool teacher with 25 years of experience working with children ages 3 to 5. Buy Piggy and books for every young friend on my gifting list, donate them to schools, get them for giving trees. We purchased this one as a Bar Mitzvah gift for a special friend. I mean, seriously, these are some of the great books.
   Great for beginner readers
We're huge fans of Mo Willems' books. Both are engaging and relatable. A great book for anyone who wants to read pre-teen fiction.
   Love this title. One of my favorites. Kids love it
That was the original "Sesame Street" parody, featuring anthropomorphic elephants and piggy. I'm not saying this was the greatest, but it was one of my favorites. A couple of guys I know have a very good reputation for being loud. Borrowed from the library, only had to buy a copy for our own collection. My girls absolutely love it, 9 and 7. We have been fans for a couple years and have about 20 books now, he said. I've read all the books, but this is one of my favorites.
   Kids love these Mo Willems books
His books have sold more than 3 million copies and are being read by millions of children. They also love to read, especially the early morning stories. Because of the scandal, Micron is seeking an injunction to halt the sale of certain products. Because they are so funny, they are great for families to come together and have a good time. My Grandkids are learning to read. Can't praise them enough!
   Read this book to a grandparent who has dementia. You may be surprised.
Of course, the Elephant and Piggie books are great for children, but here's another audience. My husband has dementia and has lost most of his expressive language, so our conversations are very limited. But he has the language and reading level of a young child. These books are wonderful for me to read to him, over and over, as he forgets he has heard them before. He also said that despite the criticism, "we laugh together." And we can laugh together, too. Magical realism.
