Summer is just around the corner and I am starting to look for reading materials for the kids to enjoy during those upcoming long days. However, I love it when I stumble upon books that they can enjoy now! I recently discovered Author Mo Willems and he has some fabulous books out!!

#Thankorama #Disney #reading #ad

I’m excited to be serving as a Mo Willems Ambassador and sharing about his fabulous books over the next few months! The month of May is Thankorama Month and we received a fun “Mo Mail” package filled with books and other goodies!

On The Mommy-Files, we are excited to share about a new book released this month by Mo Willems. It’s the final book in the beloved Elephant & Piggie series, The Thank You Book and is available in stores as of May 3rd. 

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. 


Mo Willems (www.pigeonpresents.com), a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, has been awarded a Caldecott Honor on three occasions, for Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity. The celebrated Elephant & Piggie early-reader series has been awarded the Theodor Seuss Geisel Medal on two occasions (for There Is a Bird on Your Head! and Are You Ready to Play Outside?) as well as garnering five Geisel Honors (for We Are in a Book!, I Broke My Trunk!, Let’s Go for a Drive!, A Big Guy Took My Ball! and Waiting Is Not Easy!).
