Elephant and Piggie (and Pigeon!!!) Party

PiggieConfession time. I’m Mo Willems’ biggest fan. I have a signed copy of “Amanda and her Alligator.” Librarian friends take special photos of him at the American Library Association conference every year just for me. There MAY even be a one-of-a-kind Pigeon Fan Girl t-shirt hanging in my closet…maybe. Needless to say, I was quite excited about getting to put on an Elephant and Piggie Party during spring break.

Since Elephant and Piggie wore wild and zany costumes in “I Am Invited to a Party,” we thought it might be fun to dress up, too. Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy also made surprise appearances.
