We love Elephant & Piggie at our house, and were so excited to partner with Disney-Hyperion on a sponsored post to celebrate 10 years of the series!
My girls get so excited whenever they get a new Elephant and Piggie book. These books are so hilarious and enjoyable. My girls have so many favorite parts. It’s such an easy and fun read for parents too.
Today we celebrated a little 10 Years of Fun with Elephant & Piggie! We also celebrated the newest release in the Elephant and Piggie Like Reading! series, The Good for Nothing Button by Charise Mericle Harper.
Yellow Bird has a button. It does . . . nothing! It is a good for nothing button. Red Bird and Blue Bird are excited to try the button. But when they press it, they discover that the button makes them happy. Happy is something! A flabbergasted Yellow Bird insists the button does nothing. But it sure does seem to be making him mad. Mad is something!
The hilarious debate that follows takes readers on an emotional roller coaster that pokes at the power of imaginative play.
The girls were ecstatic when they found out they had their own button that does nothing. They laughed so hard, they thought it was the funniest thing.
Here are our Top 10 Favorite Elephant & Piggie books:
