Kyle’s Favorite Author has a Blog!

I just read over on MotherReader that Mo Willems has a blog! What fun. He is the author of the incredibly funny Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus (and various other Pigeon Books like Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog) and Knuffle Bunny.

Kyle has been a big pigeon fan for awhile now and I have to say from a parent’s perspective I love these books too. If you have to read a book over and over again, these are the books to choose. They have become one of my favorite gifts for young kids. I have yet to meet a child who did not think that pigey was just too cute (and could totally relate to him!). Even Jason (who is usually a bit too old for these kind of books) thought that it was really funny.

Oh, and be sure to check out MotherReaders blog…she is a p/t children’s library assistant (I think somewhere near me here in Virginia actually) and has great book suggestions (maybe because she has two girls the same age as the boys!).

I love her blog…great book info and a great sense of humor. I have found many, many a new book to try through her. The latest one being Chickens to the Rescue which was a huge hit (with both boys). Check her out!


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Thanks so much for the kind words. My kids are 10 and 7, but I am determined to make picture books part of their daily reading diet. Sometimes they can be practice in reading – like Chickens to the Rescue – or practice in humor and expression – like the Charlie and Lola books. I’m glad some of the suggestions are working out for you.

    And my library is an Alex branch of the FCPL system. As a NoVa mom, I’m sure you’ll figure out what that is. “They” don’t like me telling.
