Not again!

Posted on

Mo Willem’s We Are in a Book! is a fantastic and fun book (as Mo Willem’s books tend to be). It also caters to a toddler’s natural desire for things to be repeated over and over and over again. The end of the book (spoiler alert) portrays the characters asking the reader (poor reader!) to return to the beginning. I love the book, but by the seventh or eighth “again!” I wish that Piggie and Gerald qualified their statement, “Will you please read us again, just ONE more time?” or “If you have already read us seven times tonight, thank you so much! You are wonderful and appreciated! Your work is done, go to bed!”
