Children's Corner: Watch Me Throw the Ball!

Review: Yes, we are big Mo Willems fans here on the blog and his newest Elephant and Piggie book, Watch Me Throw the Ball!, is a home run!

It's also special to me because my big 5 year old read the whole book on his own a couple weeks ago to us and then the next day read it to his class. It's a long book, but with a few words on each page, it's easy for him to read.

Since my 5 year old is highly competitive, I love the message in this book...just have fun. Piggie is adorable in his response to Gerald when he learns his ball really didn't go around the world. Sure it's great to excel at something but it's even better to have fun even if the outcome isn't what you thought.

This is a definite keeper of a book and well when he outgrows it, into the saved books for his kids.
