We Are in a Book! (Elephant & Piggie #13) by Mo Willems

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars, Genre: Children’s Fiction, Pages: 57, Reading Level: Easy

Book Description:

Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.

Gerald and Piggie are best friends.

In We Are in a Book! Gerald and Piggie discover the joy of being read. But what will happen when the book ends?

Using vocabulary perfect for beginning readers (and vetted by an early-learning specialist), Mo Willems has crafted a mind-bending story that is even more interactive than previous Elephant & Piggie adventures. Fans of the Geisel Award-winning duo won’t be able to put this book down- literally!

This is my favorite Elephant & Piggie book. 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 We Are in a Book, Piggie brings to Elephant’s attention that they are in a book, beginning with, “Someone’s watching us” all the way through, “Let’s see if we can get them to say something.” Genius. And since all four of us are big time readers, this story is perfect for us.

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. And what a perfect book for my first review in 2014!
