Children, teachers, librarians, administrators, booksellers, parents, and caretakers have been counting down the days until they can get their hands on The Thank You Book, the final (*sobs*) book in the Elephant and Piggie series. I've witnessed kids and adults laugh out loud uncontrollably and cheer hundreds of times because of Gerald and Piggie. They have turned many dormant readers into avid readers.
I'm thankful for Mo's commitment to creating the best books for young readers, and I know he's thankful for everyone who introduced Elephant and Piggie to kids and supported every book.
Are you ready for the main event? I am beyond honored to turn over my blog to Mo Willems to share a special video message. Thank you, Mo, Gerald, and Piggie! You make me a better teacher-librarian and read-alouder. (I'm not sure "read-alouder" is a proper term, but Deborah Wiles used it in Countdown, so I am.)
Head on over to ThankoRama.com to download, print, and fill out your own #ThankoRama speech bubbles. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Look for The Thank You Book on May 3.
