Happy Birthday Mo Willems

In honor of the author of our favorite pigeon books, Mo Willems, we held a birthday party event. We played “pin the clothes on the naked mole rat, Wilbur”, and had lots of coloring activities.  Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed, an Elephant & Piggie book, and a Cat the Cat book were read to an audience who love Mo Willems’ hilarious books as much as we do. Each of these books was a hit, especially the one from Mo’s newest book series, Cat the Cat.

Like many of Mo Willems’ books, Cat the Cat books are perfect for storybook fans as well as beginner readers. In the first book, Cat the cat introduces us to all of his new friends, Mouse the mouse, Bat the bat, and Bird the bird being just a few. At the end of the book, there is a  person who Cat the cat doesn’t know:  is it a new friend or someone scary?   Try to find the hidden pigeon in each book — can you find him?

Happy Reading, Maryam
