What we are Reading

We have loved Mo Willems books for a long time.  We have read Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, or The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog.  Now we love to read his new Piggie and Gerald series of books.  Not only are they great for beginning readers, they actually tell a story and involve comprehension…more so than many pattern books.  I also like it that Isaiah can usually figure out the words by using picture clues, stretching his sounds, and thinking about what might makes sense in the story.  This is different than some of the “Easy Reader” books I have seen. Isaiah loves to show off his reading skills by reading them over and over, they are really funny!  What do your kids like to read?
