Being an education major in college I have a strong love for children's books. One of my favorite authors post college is Mo Willems. He has an amazing blog that you can follow here. Some of my favorite entries are ones that showcase fan mail, his dining room chalkboard walls and brown paper tables, and when he shares snippets from his speaking engagements. I love, love, love his work. It is just as fun for adults as it is for the kids. And his style, while simple, is very relatable.
Well, AG has taken to loving all things Mo and his favorite Aunt in Texas (and fellow teacher) also loves Mo! Just recently she sent the kids the latest Pigeon book and a box of Pigeon Match-ominoes. AG enjoyed telling Avi-Cakes, "no, no Baby! When you get bigger." in reference to not being able to play with the Match-ominoes. :) And he thinks the lastest Pigeon adventure is hysterical...even telling us, "that's so funny." while he slaps his knee! Ha. Thanks Aunt Joy for the new goodies! AG looks forward to a game or two of Match-ominoes this summer and some quality reading time when you visit. We can't wait to see you soon!
