Mo is best know for his characters Knuffle Bunny, The Pigeon, andElephant and Piggie and his work as a writer and animator for PBS'sSesame Street.
Every year schools that participate by voting for their favorite author are invited to see the author speak and receive their award. This year I choose to take our first graders since they really love his books!
We had a great time seeing Mo Willems, hearing him read a couple of books, accept his award, and getting a pigeon drawing lesson.
I felt honored to be invited to a special luncheon afterwards by the family of Vera Milner!!
We are currently voting for our favorite author for next year's celebration.
