Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot Get Enough My daughter's love of reading started once she discovered Pig and Elephant Mo Willems books. She cannot get enough of them. We've read these over and over the last few years and she never tires of them. They have great humor and always teach a nice lesson.
