    Another fantastic addition to this series. Piggie teaches Gerald about playing pretend. My favorite moment was this one:

    This book is just so ultra-silly. I read it and couldn't stop smiling. (My grandson got a copy for Christmas.) He didn't read it with me, he just handed it to me and said 'read.'I don't know how to describe the appeal of these books. Simple ideas. Fairly simply words, though sometimes a 'big word' sneaks in, when it's needed. My grandson was having some difficulty with his reading - he's in second grade - and math is more his thing. But with these books he's smiling and laughing and reading, then re-reading.I love this author. I love his books.

    Literal and practical Gerald isn't quite sure what to make of imaginative and impulsive Piggie's declaration that she is now a frog. My 4-year-old and I are big fans of Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books. This one is a real favourite because it is delightful to read out loud, and the message is that pretending can be fun and that there is nothing wrong with being silly and playful. This is a great book for reading out loud, and for kids who are just starting to read. It is also excellent for pre-schoolers who are just starting to get into pretend role-play.

    This was such a fun book. I read it to Bug once and she can tell the story by herself now. She also spent the majority of the afternoon pretending to be a frog.

    Hooray! Frog and Piggie are back. Piggie teaches Elephant about pretending. Piggie tells Elephant, "Everyone pretends." Elephant asks, "Even grown-up people?" Piggie's expression is perfect! "All the time."

    Loved it! Hilarious and had me actually laughing out loud at times. Great for kids and adults. There are even some lines that might be more appealing to adults.

    This book was very good and I would really recommend it. I liked how it explained the word "pretend." After the story (read with PreK) I asked the kids what [animal] they could pretend to be.

    Yay! Another Elephant and Piggie story! We read them as soon as we can get them at our local library. We just love these books and our girls love to play the different parts. With only two main parts, I get to sit back and listen to our girls read the book to me. I love how Mo Willems includes lots of varying volumes and enthusiasm in his dialogue and I was so impressed how our girls used different inflections in their voice to convey these changes. Younger children will love the repetition and even older children can appreciate the twist in the story. The illustrations are just as fun as we've come to expect from the books in this series and our girls love looking for a 'hidden pigeon' in the endpages.. I love the expressions on Gerald and Piggie - you can really see their emotions. Overall, we really enjoyed reading this book together, and although our girls have outgrown the reading level of these books, we all really love them anyway.

    Piggie (a female pig) wants her friend Gerald (a male elephant) to accept her new "identity" as a frog (and eventually he does and pretends to be a cow), but they both acknowledge that it's just pretend. No matter how much a pig wants to be a frog or thinks that it's a frog, it's not—it's still a pig. Cf. I Don't Want To Be a Frog.I use the "sexuality" tag because of the current debates about gender fluidity. Clear definitions and distinctions regarding essential qualities may be difficult to articulate sometimes, but that difficulty does not necessarily indicate that X = Y.I've read this book multiple times in my ENG 1304 course at Baylor to talk about claims of definition. I also show this video.

    Logan is just beginning to read on his own and these books are perfect for that. Willems is so good at writing for new readers while keeping it funny and engaging for kids and grown-ups alike. In this book, for example, he has Piggie introduce the word "pretending" to Gerald, and because its new, Piggie says it slowly, "pre-tend-ing." On the opposite page, Gerald says it again, "Pretending?" So, the reader first sees the word broken into manageable and less intimidating parts and then all together, all within the plot. Pretending is used several more times throughout the books. I can't recommend this series enough for new readers.

    When Piggie comes hopping and ribbiting along, Gerald is understandably confused. After all, pigs don't behave that way. Piggie lets him know that she is just pretending to be a frog for a little while, and encourages Gerald to join her. Not surprisingly, Gerald is reluctant to do so since he doesn't want to hop and eat flies all day. Beginning readers will laugh as they listen to the argument and watch what happens when Gerald finally decides to moooove into a new personality. It's hard not to smile while reading about the antics of these two very different friends.

    A HUGE HIT!!! We have read it over and over and over... and over. Loved the ending--we laughed our heads off many times! :) Hooray for Mo Willems!

    I have to give a shout out to The Elephant and Piggie book series by Mo Willems. This series is destined to become a classic. These books are great because they are straight up funny! I’ve had great success using them with some of the reluctant struggling readers that I teach. They love it and will push themselves to read more because the stories are so entertaining. It’s a wonderful series for young readers to read or have read to them.Today I’m reviewing "I’m a Frog." This is another win in the series. It’s hard to pinpoint what makes these books so endearing. I think it’s a combination of some classic storytelling magic with strong characters that are relatable. Piggie and Elephant have strong opinions, incredible imaginations, and the use of a confused character leads to great comedy that the young (and not so young) can enjoy. I highly recommend I’m a Frog or any other book from this series. Your child won’t be disappointed and neither will you.​Happy Reading,Madelyn March

    This one is a family favorite! My kids want to read it over and over again. This series could not be more perfect for beginning readers. My kids are 5 & 7, both reading at a first grade level, and they LOVE this series. They are actually excited about reading! With the expressive illustrations and engaging dialogue, these books are teaching my little ones to read with better fluency and expressiveness. Even for parents, the stories are full of laugh-out-loud fun. I can't praise this series enough! Thank you Mo Willems for helping my kids to love reading!

    Imagine! Children have it in spades. Children are also so generally happy. Perhaps there is a coincidence. What do you think?**Talking points - What makes you happy when you dream about it? What makes you happy when you think about it? What do you like to pretend to be?God bless the music makers. God bless the dreamers of dreams. They are the movers and the shakers of the world forever it seems.

    This book can be taken in many different ways. It could be about how to pretend or it could be about changing who you are and being confident with who you are. This book is about Piggie teaching Gerold how to pretend and be confident with who you are. Gerold gets frustrated but also wants to pretend with Piggie.

    Piggie is pretending to be a frog, but her friend elephant just can't seem to understand 'why' she is a frog. Or 'how' she is a frog when she's a pig. So though out the story Piggie is helping Elephant learn about imagination and how it works. This was a giggle throughout story for my adult special needs son and I as I read it out loud to him.

    Piggie is a frog. She hops like a frog and says, "Ribbit." This confuses and terrifies Elephant. What if he turns into a frog also? He doesn't want to be a frog. Characteristic humor and fun of Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books.

    disclaimer- the reviewer is a huge Mo Willems fan.the lad says, "I liked this book because it was funny and Piggie and Gerald said I am pretending. Piggie says I'm a frog and Gerald says..."This was a funny story and a good read if you are a fan of Gerald and Piggie.

    This is an awesome read aloud! Also fulfilled a dream of saying "moo with me" (a la Maureen in RENT) to an audience. Even if it was an audience of preschoolers.... ;)

    I love this one because it's a great way to get the kids up and pretending to be an animal after the story. And of course, the antics of Gerald and Piggie will never steer you wrong!

    We love Elephant and Piggie at our house. Entertaining for both my daughters (3 and 8 years old). Fun for beginning readers to read/ act out with a parent. Indefatigably charming.

    I felt this one kind of missed the mark, it's about imagination but at first it seemed like it was aiming for a bigger message and just gave up...
