Elephant and Pig start a game of catch but aren't sure what to do when snake, who has no arms, wants to play too. This beginning reader uses color and speech bubbles to delineate between characters and the copious amounts of white-space will help the learning reader follow the flow of the story. Using commonly known sight words also lends itself to the beginning reader. The illustrations help show the emotions of the characters as elephant, pig and snake problem solve so everyone can play together. The illustrations also help the reader understand elements of storytelling - such as showing a bright light bulb to show that a character has an idea. If you enjoyed Mo Willems pigeon books or previous elephant and pig books, you will enjoy this.

This is an interesting...
This is an interesting children's book--I like that it addresses a physical characteristic of another animal. On a larger sense, this lesson can pertain to real life. often times children come into contact with other children who are different, and may not have the same capabilities as others. Obviously, children cannot being throwing other children around. This story also helps show children that making new friends can be as easy as playing a game together.
Elephant and Piggie is...
Elephant and Piggie is one of THE best early-reader series out there. It's simple. The pictures are helpful, but not TOO helpful. Most importantly - it's not boring! The books are short, containing few words, but the repetition is FUNNY and not too intrusive. ("You do not have arms." "I DO NOT HAVE ARMS?!?!?") It's got to be HARD to write funny books for kids this young. Honestly, I don't think I could do it! And to write one that the kid will want to read over and over again - well! I don't know how Mo Willems does it, frankly. My favorite part of this book? Hm. Has to be either Snake's (pretend) freakout upon being told that he has no arms OR Piggie's idea, after Snake fails to catch the ball several times, that maaaaaybe what they really need is MORE BALLS! (This works exactly as well as you'd expect.) Please - check out a copy of this, and other Elephant and Piggie books at your local library. Your resident early reader will thank you for it later :)
