Favorite Children's Authors Series {Mo Willems}

My husband and I had a rare quite evening at Target a few weekends ago, and while he was being very thorough on choosing a new shaver, I started roaming the book isles.

Since I haven't been a teacher for well over seven years, I feel a bit out of the children's book loop.  I used to know all of the new books that were out, and collected more than I probably needed.  I still try to keep my eye out for new books my boys would enjoy, but I'm not quite as current as I used to be.

Well, as always, thanks goodness for Target!  They had Mo Willems latest book (I didn't even know he had a new one out), The Pigeon Needs A Bath!  I had to pick it up and read the whole book right then and there.  The thing I love about Mo's books is that they make me laugh just as hard as my boys, and often times harder.  The pigeon is a crack up!  

My boys (and all of my first graders when I taught) first fell in love with Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus because it's so interactive.  The pigeon is trying to convince you, as the reader, to let him drive a bus that the bus driver specifically said the pigeon many not touch!  I can still hear my first graders yelling, "NO!" to the pigeon.

From there Mo's followed up with several other Pigeon books such as:

I love them all!  These books are definitely worth adding to your home library, or keep your eye out for them when you're at your local library.  They're also really easy to read, and because they'll want you to read the pigeon books to them over and over again, young readers will be able to read these books independently before you know it.  I still remember my twins "reading" (even if it's memorized it counts as the early developmental stages of reading) this book to their baby brother when they were only three.  Priceless!
Mo Willems has other books, but the pigeon is by far my favorite!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
