In We Are in a Book! Gerald and Piggy discover that they are characters in a book. The vocabulary is perfect for beginning readers, the story is interactive and funny. I can think of no greater tribute to the joy of reading than a book that invites the reader to step inside of it and interact one-on-one with the characters. Willems creates a wonderful read-aloud experience for kids reading to the adults in their lives, as well as for adults, like me, who read to kids on a regular basis.
