Elefante y Cerdita by Mo Willems Spanish Elephant and Piggie
Mo Willems' award-winning Elephant & Piggie series is for beginning readers. One of the more straightforward books of the series, it explores a simple game of pretend play, delving less deeply than usual into the two mismatched characters' endearing friendship. Still, after Piggie patiently explains what pretending is, Elephant doesn't just follow along with what his friend does -- he contributes his own ideas. As in the other Elephant & Piggie books, the story's told in conversation bubbles and in the exaggerated expressions of the animal characters, making it easy for parents of kids with social delays to explore conversation tools and feelings.
