Gerald and Piggie are best friends.

In Are You Ready to Play Outside?, Piggie can’t wait to go play in the sunshine. But will a rainy day ruin all the fun?

I’m not going to lie. I get excited whenever I see a new Elephant & Piggie book. Author Mo Willems’ characters, Elephant Gerald and Piggie, are hilarious. The books are easy reads for beginner readers and are recommended for ages 4-8. In Are you Ready to Play Outside?, Elephant and Piggie are excited and ready to play outside in the sunshine until it starts to rain. Piggie is not a happy pig. Will Elephant and Piggie let the rain ruin their fun? With simple and humorous text, Elephant and Piggie learn to make the best of a difficult situation. I hope you come across an Elephant and Piggie book. If you do, please sit down and give it a read. I promise you will walk away with a smile.
