Just be warned once you buy your child one of these books, you will eventually have to get the whole set!

Not sure what it is about these books, but my daughter is obsessed. I work in education, so I can say that it's very common. Once one of my students reads one book, they cannot wait to read the rest of the series!

These are simple easy books with simple graphics. My daughter is a 2nd grader who reads at about a 5-6 level, and she absolutely loves these books. She reads them over and over, and it takes her about 2 minutes to read one full book.

Each of these books has a subliminal life lesson as well. They focus on feelings, without making feelings an awkward subject. Highly recommend them, even if your child is an advanced reader...they will still love these.

I initally felt like they were a waste of money because they're so easy for my daugter to read, but after I saw how much she genuinely loves them, they were worth every penny.

She especially loves reading them to her little cousins and friends. They have a lot of expression (yelling, excited, ALL CAP WORDS, sighing, sadness, etc.) So they help my daughter practice her expressional reading where she reads without trying to speed read or sounding like a monotone robot! :)

If you are looking for charming and engaging emerging reader books, your kindergarten/first grade/early reader will be delighted with these books. The illustrations are very appealing and supportive of the text. The text is predictable, offering enough repetition to be supportive of predicting and acquiring new sight words, without being boring. Very self-reinforcing.

Great author, great characters. Difficult to draw the lesson out through the story. I understand the story, and I understand that it's a children's book - but this story seems to have been reaching a bit.

I and my son LOVED these books. These books were the first series that my son used to begin reading on his own. They are simple, funny, and great lessons. So good, I bought some for my sister's baby.

Mo's books are darling! I bought 5 of his stories for my great niece and nephew and I know they will love them. The drawings are delightful and so expressive in their simplicity. I am not gifting them right away so I don't have direct feedback from them but I am certain they will enjoy them as will their parents reading the books to them. I definitely recommend these. The relationship between Gerald and Piggie is a wonderful example for children. I'm tempted to keep them myself!

My daughter loves the book and the series by Mo Willems! I can even attest to the fact that I am not sick of this book, despite reading it to her dozens of times. I expect my son will also like them, so I'm in for dozens more re-reads!

Love Elephant and Piggie books and this one is no different. There is often an unexpected twist in the books, which is delightful. I like how the talk bubbles are in different colors so kids learn who is speaking what parts. I like how text is used to teach reading without a mono tone of voice. My kids (and the grown ups!) love them.
I have bought all the Elephant & Piggie books for my two boys. The characters of Elephant and Piggie are so fun. We love to read them at bed time. My 6yr old son can read through the books by himself.
