Elephant & Piggie Party
Admit it. You absolutely LOVE Mo Willems. Even after your kids have gone to sleep, you keep reading the books about an extremist pigeon, an enthusiastic pig, and a cautious elephant named Gerald. Don't worry. You're not alone. We've yet to meet an individual, kid or adult, who doesn't want to join the Mo Willems fan club. And that's why we decided to throw an Elephant & Piggie Party this Saturday, April 14, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. The books in that series work as bedtime read-alouds, beginning readers, and quick laughs for any age. Lots of wisdom there, too.
Our party will begin with Gerald and Piggie incorporating a dozen of their books into a hilarious skit. There will also be opportunities to make an elephant craft, adopt a pig, and scarf down ice cream. We want every fan of the series to be able to come, but please let us know ahead of time by calling 444-7833. We'll need to prepare a spot for YOU! In the meantime, check out these websites and books to get pumped about elephants, pigs, parties, and Mo Willems.

* Did you notice that almost all of these book titles include an exclamation point or a question mark? Mr. Willems is both very excited and very curious. An excellent combination!
