Ten Years of Elephant & Piggie!
As you probably already know, we LOVE the Elephant & Piggie books at my house. So, of course, we were so excited to partner with Disney-Hyperion on a sponsored post to celebrate 10 years of the series!
Ten years of these adorable and relatable friends teaching kids not only how to read, but also how to be a good friend and how to handle difficult emotions.
In fact, Disney-Hyperion sent me a party pack and we used it to throw ourselves a little party.
I’m totally keeping one of these stress balls on my desk!
We also got our very own copy of the newest book in the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading series, The Good for Nothing Button. Spoiler alert, the good for nothing button is actually good for something!
Ten years got me thinking about all my favorite Elephant & Piggie books, so in honor of their ten-year anniversary, here’s my Top Ten list, in no particular order, because really, they’re all great.
- A Big Guy Took My Ball – You’d think this would be about bullying, but really it’s about judging.
- Should I Share My Ice Cream I mean really, who hasn’t wondered if this is totally necessary?
- Can I Play Too? Elephant & Piggie AND a snake?
- Are You Ready To Play Outside? Who knew you could make even parents laugh about getting out of the house.
- Pigs Make Me Sneeze Could this be the end of a beautiful friendship?
- There Is a Bird on My Head! Who knew there was something worse than a bird on your head!
- Waiting Is Not Easy – As any small child knows!
- We Are in a Book – I can’t help it, I love metafiction, and what’s better than metafiction for kids who don’t even know it’s unusual yet?
- I’m a Frog – Pretending is what childhood is all about, and Piggie is an expert, even if Elephant isn’t quite sure.
- The Thank You Book – This was the last book in the series, and I’ll admit it, I get a little teary-eyed reading it.
