knuffle_bunny.JPGAuthor/illustrator extraordinaire Mo Willems has many fans here at Booklights (and beyond), and Mom Karen counts herself among them.

"My daughter loves Knuffle Bunny in all its forms (including the sequel). She adores the combination of photography and cartoons and has been able to recite the story since before she could read."

Many kids know a story word-for-word before they can read. Do your kids have any favorites that they know backward and forward?

I am totally in love with Mo Willems. Mo Willems' books. I mean I am totally in love with Mo Willems' books.

"No David" is another one of those books kids know backwards and forwards. With it's simple dialogue and distinctive illustrations, kids go crazy for it.

The Mo Willems Gerald and Piggy series...

Goodnight Moon...

And lately, Where the Wild Things Are.

The first book my son memorized was "The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear" by Don and Audrey Wood. He later mastered large sections of Maurice Sendak's "Pierre".

My student's five-year-old sister picked up Eileen Christelow's Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and recited the whole thing to me, turning the pages, her eyes glowing. This child speaks very little English, but she loves those monkeys!

My kids also love Mo Willem's books. I actually here them reciting lines from Knuffle Bunny or the Pigeon books while they are playing. Some of their favorite lines are "Hey What's the Big Idea? A Hot Dog Doesn't Go" and "Wumpy Flapply Snurp."

Simone, I love when kids do that! While I was living with a friend who had a four year-old daughter, she would tell me these big whoppers and finish with "true story" from "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus". She made me read that book to her every night for a solid month, and neither one of us ever got tired of it.
