There is a Bird on Your Head (Elephant and Piggie Series) by Mo Willems

I’ve often felt there was much left to be desired as far as easy reader books are concerned. There is only so much that can be said about the “cat that sat on the mat”. That was before Mo Willem’s Elephant and Piggie books came to town. There are currently four books in the series (hopefully with many more on the way). There is a Bird on Your Head is my favorite title in the series.

Elephant has a problem. Two birds have decided to build their nest on his head. His friend Piggie thinks this is wonderful. Elephant isn’t so sure—and with good reason. Out of all the books I’ve read aloud to groups of children this is the one that always gets the most giggles.

Other titles in this series are: My Friend is Sad, I’m Invited to a Party, and Today I Will Fly (My second favorite in this series). The next book in the series, I will Surprise My Friend, is coming to a library near you in June of 2008.
