Shannon Miller and I had a wonderful time celebrating Elephant and Piggie's Friendiversary.
Friendiversary is an annual celebration of friendship and reading from First Book and Mo Willems.
From BookMark, The First Book Blog:
"First Book is celebrating Friendiversary this week by providing 7,000 new Elephant & Piggie books to second-graders at Title I schools in Louisiana and Massachusetts. The Elephant & Piggie series is written and illustrated by our friend Mo Willems, whose support makes it possible for First Book able to provide these books. Every book includes a special Friendiversary note from Mo, and his publisher, Disney Publishing Worldwide, is also providing activity kits, stickers and posters free of charge to each classroom."
Shannon and I will celebrate friendship and reading all year long. We hope you will, too. :)
