Elephant and Piggie Like Reading

Mo Willems has written twenty-five Elephant and Piggie easy readers.  Recently, he announced that he has written his last book in the series.  Young readers should not despair because a new series that feature Elephant and Piggie has been created.

“We Are Growing” written by Laurie Keller is the first in this new series.  Introduced by Elephant and Piggie, the story deals with how several blades of grass deal with growing and how everyone grows differently.

Following the same format as the similar Elephant and Piggie books, the story features repetitive words, large print, and simple concepts.9781484726358_p0_v2_s118x184.jpg

After reading this new book to K-2nd graders at W.O.Schaefer School, I can report that this new series will be a hit.  These young readers thoroughly enjoyed the humor and development of the simple plot.  Let’s hope for more titles soon in this new series.
