    So there comes a Snake Did I mention that I am not very fond of snakes With the addition of a new friend to easy going drawing and illustrations, Mo Willems pulls out another rabbit out of the hat.A self confessed fan of the series.

    Adorable introduction to the concept of disability, and overcoming legit challenges snake cannot play catch in the traditional way with some creative thinking Elephant and Piggie are great friends.

    A book all my children enjoyed Even the twin 2 yr olds were riveted by this story and the characters They couldn t wait to see what would happen I loved the new snake character, at first we thought him a worm, he was so small and cute A level 1 reading book at best, but a wonderfully typical Willems that any family would be sure to love.

    If you are ever looking for a picture book or easy reader sure to pull a child in and get them adoring books, pull any of Mo Willems books off the shelf His Elephant and Piggie series is so simple, yet profound and funny This latest book in the series is one of the best in the bunch Here we see Elephant, the careful andserious character, and Piggie, who is loud and enthusiastic The two of them are best friends, which alone has led to some great books Add Snake who wants to join them i If you are ever looking for a picture book or easy reader sure to pull a child in and get them adoring books, pull any of Mo Willems books off the shelf His Elephant and Piggie series is so simple, yet profound and funny This latest book in the series is one of the best in the bunch Here we see Elephant, the careful andserious character, and Piggie, who is loud and enthusiastic The two of them are best friends, which alone has led to some great books Add Snake who wants to join them in playing ball Of course, that s a problem because Snake can t really catch since he doesn t have arms But that doesn t mean he can t try and it certainly doesn t mean that Piggie can t figure out a solution that will have them all playing together.Willems is the master of brevity, capturing entire scenes in a few words and his simple illustrations His book are perfection for early readers but also make great read alouds thanks to his skill in writing His characters are beautifully drawn, offering so much in so few words and images It is magic on a page.In this book, Willem s natural humor comes pouring forth into a vaudeville like scene that will have children laughing aloud, guffawing even It is a special easy reader that will have my teenage son crowding us on the couch to be able to see But then, all he needed to hear was that it was a Mo Willems book and it was funny Guaranteed success between two covers, this book is laugh out loud funny, wry and as always with Willems, big hearted Appropriate for ages 3 6 and the occasional thirteen year old

    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 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
