We are continuing with our celebration of Children’s Book Week! This holiday is a national literacy initiative to celebrate all of the wonderful books that have been written for young children!
Many of you already know about my love of reading, but in case you’re new here, guess what? I LOVE READING! 🙂 In fact, it’s what I got my M.Ed. in from University of Missouri (yes, Go Mizzou!)
Ok, so this week, I’m pumped because I get to share my favorite children books with all of you! Each day I’ll showcase a new book, give a quick synopsis of the book, and include a link so you can purchase the book if you don’t already have it.
There are so many AMAZING books out there, how can I seriously just pick 5? I’ll try my best!
Elephant and Piggie Books

Today’s book recommendation is any of the amazingly funny Elephant and Piggie Books by Mo Willems!
These books are
- Funny, no, HILARIOUS
- Teach sight and high-frequency words
- Simple to understand
- Focused on only 2-3 characters at a time
- Easy to read
- Fun to use for Reader’s Theater
Elephant & Piggie books are great for Reader’s Theater, which means you play a part and your child plays a part. This is a great way to teach fluency, inflection, tone of voice, and paying attention to punctuation.
