Are You Ready to Play Outside?

Are You Ready to Play Outside? (An Elephant and Piggie Book) Mo Willems. 2008. Hyperion. 64 pages.

Are you ready to play outside?
Yes! Yes! Yes!

These two best friends may be ready to play outside--ready to do everything--but the weather has something else in mind! Oh no! What are two friends to do when all their big plans are ruined by the rain? Can these two find a way to still have fun no matter what the weather?

This is a fun story. I loved the spirit of this one. How Gerald and Piggie learn that you can almost always have fun if you make the best of each opportunity. I am just loving this series. Who do you like best? Gerald or Piggie?
