Are You Ready to Play Outside? 12/14/12
Are You Ready to Play Outside? by Mo Willems won the Theodore Geisel award in 2009. Piggie and Gerald want to play outside but the weather isn't cooperating. It's pouring outside and Piggie hates the rain!
The book has the usual back and forth's so popular in the Elephant and Piggie books. Piggie can't contain her energy and Gerald suggests caution when it comes to playing. The rain, though, is something that Gerald can handle better than his friend.
It's a cute book but not as memorable as others in the series are. The one scene that sticks with me is Gerald helping Piggie play in the rain without getting wet.
