April 19, 2013

Welcome Elephant & Piggie!

As promised, we have some new friends in our room. They are a pig and an elephant and their names are Gerald (elephant) and Piggie!

These endearing characters are the creation of author/illustrator Mo Willems. You can check out his wonderful website by clicking here.

There are many books in this series and they are perfect for young readers who are learning to infer. The illustrations are very detailed which allow children to use their inferring skills to figure out how the characters are feeling and why. Gerald and Piggie's personalities are also well-developed in the stories and readers begin to infer based on what they know about them. Click on their pictures below to read more about them.

Here are a few illustrations from their books. What can you infer? 

Have a fabulous weekend!
