April is showering us with a wealth of brand-new kids’ books that are certain to become family favorites. From new adaptations of old favorites to exciting and fresh stories for kids, this month has given us a most anticipated list we won’t soon forget.
We've waited 20 years for this special anniversay edition. 20! Years! Do you know how long that is? Over that time Mo Willems has given us so many wonderful stories and characters to help fill our shelves and we're all ready to celebrate two decades of Pigeon prowess.
Finally, a book you can say "no" to!
When the Bus Driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place—a pigeon! But you've never met a pigeon like this one before. As the Pigeon pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, readers answer back and decide his fate.
Mo Willems' hilarious picture book was awarded a 2004 Caldecott Honor and has been inducted into the Picture Book Hall of Fame. Now, twenty years later, readers can amp up the fun in an all-new board game featuring the Pigeon! Players drive their bus pieces around town. The first player to get to the Bus Depot wins, but remember—don't let the Pigeon drive the bus!
