There is a Bird on Your Head

As you will soon see, I love anything by Mo Willems.  I think he is a genius at drawing kids into short simple stories.  This book There is a Bird on Your Head is one of mine and my class' favorites. 

In this story, Elephant has a bird on his head and he seeks help from his friend Piggie.  Piggie gives him a simple solution that in turns causes her problems.  Piggie and Elephant are both very dramatic about the situations they are in.  These books are hilarious and leave my class laughing out loud.  Mo Willems' use of large text, and bold words also makes this (and all of the other Piggie and Elephant books)  great for teaching kids to read with expression.
