We Are On A Pumpkin!

Gerald and Piggie are big favorites around our house.  Moe Willems is ingenious the way he writes these stories.  With his help, Gerald and Piggie have helped Zachary and Matthew learn how to get along in spite of their differences.  Gerald even seems a little autistic which is a big help to Zach because he relates so well to the stories!  Piggie, like Matt is full of energy and excitement, ready to take on any challenge with enthusiasm.

So, with that being said, it wasn't a difficult decision to pick Gerald and Piggie as our literary characters when it came time to decorate a pumpkin (or two) for the Starry school library.  During the month of October families could bring in a pumpkin that they decorated like a children's literature character to display.  We got ours in by the middle of the month but we were able to use our Friday off to paint and have fun with the decorating.

We like reading them, we like listening to their stories and even the older kids in the house LOVE to hear Zachary and Matt act out the books as they read them out loud.  We just love Gerald and Piggie.

Best news: New Elephant and Piggie book comes out in November "Waiting is Not Easy" and the boys can NOT wait!

But for now: We are on a pumpkin!
