We loved getting some new #MoMail this month including the newly released Mo Willems book It’s Shoe Time! by Bryan Collier. It is part of our favorite Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! Series from Mo Willems!
It is the perfect beginning-reader series in which Mo Willems’ Elephant & Piggie characters introduce readers to new authors and illustrators with great new books. My little Thomas loves that he is able to read the books all by himself these days! He has especially loved reading another Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! book lately: We Are Growing! by Laurie Keller. He thinks it’s just so funny!
The newest book, It’s Shoe Time! is about a young girl who picks out shoes for a fun outing with her father! It redefines what it means to be a pair! It is a beautiful book with rich, rhyming dialog that creates a powerful reading experience!
After reading this book with Thomas it got me thinking about a few struggles we have almost every morning. Getting three kids up and out of the house in time for school each morning is NO JOKE! I have tried to think of ways that will help our mornings go smoother! It seems we are always missing a shoe, matching socks, tracking down clean underwear. It makes our morning a little chaotic and that really sets the tone for the rest of the day.
