If you’re not sure where to start looking, let us give you a helping hand with a few of our favourite recommendations. To begin with, have you seen his most famous book series with the popular children’s character- the pigeon? We have a seven-book paperback collection of the award-winning Don’t Let the Pigeon Series. Perfect for ages 3-7, these hilarious and rib-tickling interactive bedtime stories  contain seven stories, including Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, The Pigeon Needs a Bath, The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!, The Duckling Finds a Cookie, The Pigeon wants a Puppy! and The Pigeon HAS to go to School! A hit with children and adults, these books are the perfect bedtime books to read before bed. 

If you’ve already whizzed through the Pigeon Books and want to delve into more of Mo Willems’ books, you have to check out our collection of ten amazing stories about two unlikely friends: an elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie. The Wonderful World of Elephant and Piggie Series 10 Books Collection Box Set by Mo Willems. As well as being entertaining, these books help to transform and develop your child’s reading ability. Figuring out sounds, blending them together to form words and then piecing those words into sentences can be a lengthy process that is consistently developed over time. These books provide plenty of entertainment with just the right amount of words on the page so as not to overwhelm little readers with enough repetition to gain all the practice they need. These books also include some delightful illustrations that are the perfect addition to these hilarious books. 

If you’ve read this far and still need a little more convincing, then we have the perfect book to change your mind. The Knuffle Bunny series by Mo Willems is always a hit with kids. Check out the Knuffle Bunny Books. The first in the much-loved series, join Trixie, her Dad and her favourite stuffed bunny in this award-winning and hilarious cautionary tale. This is the true-to-life tale of what happens when Daddy’s in charge and things go horribly wrong. Merging beautifully expressive illustrations and black-and-white photos of New York, follow Trixie, Daddy and Knuffle Bunny on their trip to the neighbourhood Laundromat.
