So, I have only read a couple Elephant and Piggie books. I can understand why kids love them. When The Thank You Book came out, I was sad for kids because there would be no new Elephant and Piggie. Well, that isn’t exactly true now. Piggie and Elephant want to share with us, the books they are reading. Book 1 of “Elephant & Piggie Like Reading” is called The Cookie Fiasco by which is written by Dan Santat. Fantastic illustrations in this story of 4 friends with only 3 cookies to share…friendship, math, cookies…what more could you want in a fun new story!! This is a great read and those Elephant and Piggie readers will greatly enjoy this!
What a fun story. This is the first chapter book that I have read outloud to kids during library and they are so enjoying it. Then *voila* it is on the list for OBOB 2015-16…we are ahead of the game! Ben Silverstein, age ten, is sent to stay with his grandfather in Buttonville. Grandpa Abe frequents the senior center, where every day is a treat and pudding day is the most popular!! Enter Pearl Petal, a trouble maker according to the adults, and a new friendship is born. Both Pearl and Ben think they have seen a dragon flying through the air. Was it truly a dragon or is this another of Ben’s “stories”. So glad that this is a series, can’t wait to continue on!!!!
