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 Are You Ready to Play Outside?, Piggie can’t wait to go play in the sunshine. But will a rainy day ruin all the fun?
While the story and vocabulary are for toddlers, it has adult humor in it as well, or at least humor adults will appreciate. I chuckle every time I read one of these books. And there are some great lessons to be learned.
In Are You Ready to Play Outside, Elephant & Piggie want to play outside. Unfortunately, it begins to rain and Piggie discovers that rain does not necessarily ruin the fun.
All his books display Mo Willems’ wonderful imagination and outstanding sense of humor. They are perfect to read aloud with my toddler! I highly recommend all the Elephant & Piggie books.
