We're in the final stretch for the year (four days left and way too much to finish). So I was excited to pick up the newest Piggie and Elephant book by Mo Willems and share it with my class today. If you haven't read any of these books, check them out. I was skeptical when the first one came out but I'm completely addicted to them now. My first graders adore them. I had not told them there was a new one so you can hear their excitement when I explain what I have.
I love reading to kids. They are so engaged, so quiet, so drawn into the story, it is amazing. My class is never as quiet as they are during a book. When we read this one again they will be more vocal but the first time through they're just soaking it in.
