This Elephant & Piggie book doesn't disappoint. The book opens to the simple and crisp illustrations we know and love from Mo WiIllems' books. The text is a solid level 1 so it's a good book to grab when you have an early reader on your hands. Sharing is something children often struggle with so these familiar feelings will be a perfect opportunity so sneak in a discussion on sharing. Will Elephant decide to share his ice cream with Piggie before it melts?
