Authors Week: Mo Willems

Mo Willems is the author of "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!," "Knuffle Bunny," and "Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed," as well as many other charming books. Young children, especially, tend to love the silly stories and playful pictures in Mo Willem's books. My copies of his book were constantly checked out of the classroom library.

In addition to a fun blog, Mo Willems has a fantastic website full of activities for kids! Let me show you around his site.

When you visit Mo's site, I recommend going to "Pigeon Presents" for lots of activities! Here's a breakdown of what you can find.

1- FUN: Here you can find interactive games like "The Elephant & Piggie Dance Game" and "Hot Dog Dress Up." There's also a mothly coloring page here.

2- BOOKS: This is a peek at the books Mo Willems has created and links to purchase them.

3- PALS: Here you can meet all of Mo Willem's pals from his books. On each pal's page you can find several printable activities from coloring pages, drawing directions, recipes, word searches and more. You can also find out more information about each of the characters such as their birthdays, favorite colors, and hobbies.

4- GROWN UP STUFF: This is the place to get some really fantastic FREE resources for your classroom and children. There are several teacher's guides and event kits that are full of great ideas for teaching concepts with Mo's books, printable activities and more. In the Naked Mole Rat even kit you can learn more about naked mole rats too! This is the best stuff on the site!

?- Go here to learn more about some cool buses!

We hope you make some time to visit Mo Willem's site this week and enjoy using these activities!
