The first Willem's book I got (Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus) was from Devon, but we have since added several more to our collection (Edwina, Knuffle Bunny). I found out a few months ago that Willems has started an early reader collection that is perfect for kids just starting out to read because the story's vocabulary is fairly limited. While Sydney isn't exactly an early reader--more like, young memorizer--she did learn to read her very first word this week:
As in seeing a stop sign and saying, "S-T-O-P! That spells 'STOP.' I can read!" Very exciting.
Anyways, back to Mo...here's Today I Will Fly. The story is about Piggie who wants to fly, but her friend Elephant isn't very optimistic about it. In the end, the pig does fly. Sort of. With some help, at any rate.
