Anyone a else Mo Willems Fan? a Children's Literature (maig 2015)


A densely rhyming tale of a little frog called Nanette and a day she won't soon forget - she gets to get the baguette herself! But when she eats it on the way home (it is warm and wonderful and smells/tastes so good, after all), will Mom be upset? (Spoiler alert: not at all! "Let's reset." Mom is no stranger to eating a baguette on the way home...)

Are you big? A hot air balloon is big...a cloud is big...a storm is big... Each "big" thing is dwarfed by its successor, until the question returns: Are YOU big? To a bug, you are! It's all about perspective.

Perfect for toddler/preschool storytimes!

Author Mo Willems does a wonderful job in this beginning reader book. Piggie finds a ball and then big guy (whale) takes it away from him. Piggy tells Gerald about the big guy taking his ball. Gerald decided to go get the ball back from the big guy, but he is unsuccessful. Piggy, Gerald, and Big Guy learn to solve their problem and become friends by playing together. Children will love this beginning reader and develop a love for reading.
