You probably already know Mo Willems from Knuffle Bunny or Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. Did you know he also has a twenty five-book series with Elephant and Piggie? I first heard these in a public library during toddler read-aloud time: these books are made to be read aloud!
The two friends get into all kinds of interesting situations (I'm looking at you, There Is a Bird On Your Head and I Will Surprise My Friend), and their faces and their speech bubbles (size, font, wiggly shape) help the reader know how they sound. Take a look at the art on the end pages to see a surprisingly familiar face.
Always up for book chats, reading, library memes - proud to be Kepler's first librarian
