Happy Pig Day by Mo Willems-ADVISABLE

Willems, Mo.  Happy Pig Day!, 64 pgs.  Hyperion Book CH, 2011.  $8.99.  Outside cover:  “Gerald is careful.  Piggie is not.  Piggie cannot help smiling, Gerald can.  Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to.  Gerald and Piggie are best friends.  In Happy Pig Day! Piggie celebrates her favorite day of the year!  But will Gerald the Elephant be included in the festivities?”  We enjoyed this book.  We especially loved the surprise ending.  This book could be used in a unit on friendship and feelings/emotions.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: SL.
