Elephant and Piggie

Leapcreature is reading 2-3 grade Books and we keep a reading Log where he has to read 20 books and gets a reward for it. Usually I'm not so much for rewarding good studies but I want to encourage all of my Boys to read and read a lot, for it's a great way to become open minded, to search for knowledge etc. 

Once in a while though I let an easier book count just to give Leapcreature a break and we'd get some funny books and enjoy them all together. One of our favorites is Elephant and Piggie, our favorite book so far is: Should I share my Ice Cream. I read it to the Boys the other day and even my 2 year little Monkey was cracking up .. for me the most enjoyable part was to watch them laugh so hard !!

Here goes the official Book Review:

Gerald is careful. Piggie is not.Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.
Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to.

Gerald and Piggie are best friends.

In Should I Share My Ice Cream? Gerald has a big decision to make. But will he make it in time?
Using vocabulary that is perfect for beginning readers (and vetted by an early-learning specialist), Mo Willems has crafted a funny story about the challenges of doing the right thing. Fans of the Geisel Award-winning duo will eagerly eat it up!


  1. My girls love reading - especially when I quiz them on what they read. I'm tempted to do rewards for reading, but haven't so far... thankfully, if I tell them, grab a book and read - they'll usually oblige! :D

  2. that's great Serena, and yes I also always quiz them after we hear a story. I'm sure you know about the site http://bookadventure.com ? I've signed Leap Creature up and he is very close to his second reward :-) I also like it to find books so if I'm lazy to go to the library for his books, we'd just make a session on http://bookadventure.com/Book_finder.aspx and I'd order 7-10 books for the next week to come.. Thank God our kids like to read, it's such a blessing !!
