I am sitting at my desk with tears streaming down my face. A while ago I noticed a new Mo Willems book was coming out in May. I had planned to order it for my son because Elephant and Piggie have been his pals through his reading struggles. Dyslexia is hard and Elephant and Piggie made it less hard. But I hadn’t gotten around to ordering it yet.
I realized today that this new book is, in fact, the LAST book of 25. I get it. Mr. Willems is ready for a new adventure. But man, when I heard that news it made me sad and thankful at the same time. These books will forever hold a dear place in my heart because they brought joy to a reader who was struggling.
Thanks for 25 hilarious adventures with Elephant and Piggie. Thanks for making reading fun for a kid who didn’t think it fun at all. Enjoy your new adventure!
Our new book will be here Monday!
