Should I Share My Ice Cream? by Mo Willems

Should I Share My Ice Cream? by Mo Willems is part of the Elephant and Piggie series. This series does not need to be read in any particular order, but each one is wonderful for first readers.

The pages only have a few words on a page. There is a lot of repetition, which helps your little reader gain a sense of accomplishment as they read a fifty to sixty page book.

This series shows the importance of being a good friend. Willems uses humor in all of his books. The illustrations are clean and simple, and each book teaches without being didactic.

This series is a favorite of Angie's kids: Callie, Jace, and Olivia. If you have a child who is struggling with reading, get some of Willems' books. You won't be sorry. The price on his books are quite reasonable as well.

My friend, Michelle, is determined not have a Library of Congress sized library in her home, so she pulled some of her nicer books for the NICU book project. She brought over 35  more books. That means seven more babies get the gift of reading. Thank you, Michelle.

Take a look at these treasures.

Read to a child today and help them start their reading journey.
