Mo Willems Day Thread

Children’s author Mo Willems was born on Feb. 11, 1968.  As a former Children’s Librarian, Mo Willems is one of my absolute favorites for kids (and for me to read to kids). His books have a wonderful sense of humor. You may recognize such titles as:

The Elephant & Piggie series. Books in this series won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for “most distinguished book for beginning readers” in 2008 & 2009.

Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! which was named a Caldecott Honor Book. Basically, a runner-up for most distinguished American picture book for children.

And Knuffle Bunny, another Caldecott Honor book.

If you have young kids in your life, you owe it to yourself and them to check out some Mo Willems books.
