Have I thanked you lately? Here’s a big THANK YOU to you for stopping by to read this. Children’s book author, Mo Willems, has release the final book in the oh-so popular Elephant & Piggie series. The Thank You Book is the perfect ending to the Elephant & Piggie series. It is such a fun read, and so sweet with an important message for children. I am so excited to partner with Disney-Hyperion for this sponsored post, and to share my thoughts on The Thank You Book with you, along with a fun giveaway opportunity.
The Thank You Book by Mo Willems
Gerald is careful. Piggie is not.
Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.
Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to.
Gerald and Piggie are best friends.
In The Thank You Book!, Piggie wants to thank EVERYONE. But Gerald is worried Piggie will forget someone . . . someone important.
It is hard to believe this is the 25th and final book of the series. In this final installment, Piggie is determined to thank everyone who has played a part in this enormously popular and much beloved series. Devoted Elephant & Piggie fans will appreciate the appearance of favorite characters including a hard-to-spot Pigeon on the cover. I love that this book is a chance to say goodbye to all the friends made through the series. Geared toward kids ages 6 – 8, the series can be enjoyed by kids of all ages. Even this BIG kid! If you haven’t read these books, I encourage you to head to the library or pick them up from your local bookstore.
In honor of the May 3 release of The Thank You Book, Mo Willems has declared this entire month of May to be “THANKORAMA” month to inspire readers to say THANK YOU to someone special in their lives. I am loving this idea!!!
