They. Are. Hilarious.
They're about a cautious, worrisome elephant named Gerald and his silly, adventurous best friend Piggie. I have never seen my kindergarten class laugh so hard. They literally fight over who gets to pick these books for their book boxes. There are around 20 Elephant and Piggie books, and every one I've seen is hilarious. But these are a few of my favorites. (Click the captions to find them on Amazon.)
|We Are in a Book!|
|Today I Will Fly!|
|Are You Ready to Play Outside?|
The best thing about these books is that they're hilarious to read out loud, but they're also on a first grade reading level. So even some of my high kindergarteners can read them by themselves. They're retail $8.99, but they're all $5.61 on Amazon (hardcover!). So pretty much every time I order something, I throw in a couple of these books too.
And then you should see how much my 6 year olds squeal when I carry a new one into class.
