I Love My New Toy

I Love My New Toy (An Elephant & Piggie Book) Mo Willems. 2008. Hyperion. 64 pages.

Hi, Piggie! What are you doing?
I love my new toy.

Gerald and Piggie are friends. Best friends. In this book, Piggie has a new toy. When Gerald accidentally breaks Piggie's toy, many tears are shed! But is the case as serious, as dramatic as Piggie would have you believe? What can these two learn about playing together? What can these two learn about friendship?

The Elephant & Piggie books are great. There are plenty in the series--which is a very good thing!

  1. I'm hoping to focus this year more on finding great books for 4-8 year olds, the age of the students at my school.
