This summer, I was excited to announce that I was a brand ambassador for the awesome author, Mo Willems! I’m continuing with another post about his new reading program called Elephant & Piggie Like Reading. I received an awesome package that included the first two books that are part of this special series: We are Growing and Cookie Fiasco. In the package were also some sweet cookies and adorable finger puppets. What a fun package to arrive on our doorstep!

Hippo, Croc, and the Squirrels are determined to have equal cookies for all! But how? There are only three cookies . . . And four of them. . . What’s more, they need to act fast before nervous Hippo breaks all the cookies into crumbs!
