Children just adore Elephant and Piggie There is a Bird on Your Head is a personal favorite, but all Mo Willems books are wonderful The illustrations are cute and the reading is extremely simple with short sentences in large bold font Mo Willems is undeniably one of our favorite authors 5 Maybe it s just me, but I didn t like this story Elephant and Piggie enter yet another wonderful story with much to say and laughs aplenty for the young reader When Piggie advises her best friend that he has a bird on his head, Gerald is anything but impressed What begins as a single bird is soon a pair and before he knows it, Gerald has a full blown nest atop his head He tries everything he can think of to rid himself of the birds, to no avail Finally, Piggie has an idea and Gerald is free, if only for a time New enjoyed this one and told me that he would love to read it again soon Our tag team work on this piece brought the story to life. My God my loved this one Two birds decide to make their nest on the top of Gerald s head Piggie informs him that they are in love, so he shouldn t disturb them.Soon they will have three eggs hutching.Your little one may start asking you about flowers and bees and how the eggs appeared inside the nest Be prepared Astounding in its portrayal of modern existence, There Is a Bird on Your Head is unparallelled by any other work in the western canon of literature Willems asks the question What does it mean to be human and answers with singular definitiveness to the extent that the former problem need never be pondered again In it s shadow, all other canonical works even those of Milton and Shakespeare are rendered insignificant by Willems resonant masterpiece There Is a Bird on Your Head is a rare watershed accomplishment to be delighted by and reckoned with. I don t think you can truly appreciate the genius of this series until you read them with someone between 3 5 years old. Really cute and funny Amazing pick for kids. The power of asking for something politely.
