Should I Share My Ice Cream? By: Mo Willems
Mo Willems is definitely one of my favorite children's authors!. His great sense of humor embodies all of his work. All of his children's book in my opinion are hilarious and will impress the adults just as much as the kids.
The Piggie and Elephant books are about two best friends. Piggie and Elephant are very different from each other but seem to compliment each other well. In Should I share my ice cream Elephant who has gotten an ice cream cone faces a dilemma: Should he gobble the delicious sweet treat now or share this goody with his very best friend?! Watching Elephant try to decide whether or not to share is so funny and then doesn't the ice cream go and melt before he can come to a conclusion. "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" But here comes Piggie with her very own ice cream cone to share with her best friend. She'll never realize the struggle Elephant has gone through!
This book really shows the emotions that go along with sharing and being selfless. It is a human response to want to keep something for your own. This book is a perfect time to break out the silly and really act out all of Elephants emotions. Do your kids a favor and get this gut buster of a book...if not for them, than for you!
