Elephant & PiggieElephant and Piggie are back again! Thank you, Mr. Mo Willems! In their 19th(!) adventure, A Big Guy Took My Ball!, a big guy takes Piggie’s ball, leaving her very upset. Here comes Gerald to help! Willems’ take on easy readers with the Elephant and Piggie Series has been terrific for my children both before and after learning to read. Once a toddler has been read to, she or he often can flip through the pages, all 60+ of them. These are perfect reading for the 2-6 year range, but still entertain those older (even those much older – assuming you are mostly filled with inner child).

A Big Guy Took My Ball! will be released on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013
