My five-year-old twins LOVE it when I read to them and they've been sitting through more and more stories lately, which makes this bibliophile mama so happy! We first heard about the Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems from school (they are in 4K) since they are popular books in classroom libraries, along with the Pigeon books. We borrowed all of the them from our public library and my kids loved them so much that we are working on buying our own copies!
I Broke My Trunk! is another wonderful book in the Elephant and Piggie series by acclaimed children's author Mo Willems. As usual, Elephant and Piggie are hilarious and the friendship between the two of them is perfect for young kids to read about. I'm not going to provide a synopsis of the book since I don't want to give the story away. You are going to want to buy this book. Buy all of the Elephant and Piggie books! Trust me!
This book is a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book. It is a beautiful hardcover with thick, paperback pages so they will withstand many, many readings through the story (which will happen!). The book is 57 pages long. We can generally read these books in about five minutes.
I cannot tell you how much our whole family enjoys these books! Even my husband and I find them hilarious! They are short stories and some pages only have a couple words on them but they are stories kids will want to read over and over again. My kids are even starting to read and these books have helped a lot. There are plenty of opportunities to spell words and point out sentences and pretty soon, your kids will be reciting them back to you. What an amazing thing to find a series of books that help your kids read!
These books are perfect for the four to eight-year-old crowd but there is no reason kids younger and older wouldn't enjoy them either.
Overall, buy this book. You won't be disappointed at all! Kids love Mo Willems and discovering these books has impacted my twins so much! They are wonderful stories of friendship with plenty of humor. We are Mo fans for life (or until my kids outgrow these books)!
