There is a Bird on Your Head
Willems, Mo. 2007. THERE IS A BIRD ON YOUR HEAD. New York: Hyperion. ISBN 9781423106869 [Suggested Grade Levels PreK-2]
Piggie and Elephant are back again and Gerald the elephant is discovering that there is something worse than having a bird on his head—and that is having two birds on his head. The question is—can his best friend Piggie rescue him?
Piggie and Elephant continue to delight emerging readers in Mo Willems’ latest addition to their continuing saga. Told with a marvelous sparcity of language and simple illustrations, THERE IS A BIRD ON YOUR HEAD is a pleasure to share with a child or have a child share with you.
Whether for a group read aloud or shared time with one or two special children, the Pig and Elephant adventures are fun to share. Use in a group setting or at home with those students who are just beginning to become independent readers or with those children to whom you want to introduce the magic of the printed word. Read aloud with a small stuffed bird on your own head, just for fun!
