Description of Product: ” In April 2003, television writer and animator Mo Willems published his first children’s book, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!. What originated quietly as a doodle in a sketchbook for family and friends became a publishing phenomenon and an instant children’s classic. The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog! followed in April 2004; Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! in 2006; and The Pigeon Wants a Puppy! in 2008. Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! was awarded the prestigious Caldecott Honor by the American Library Association and was inducted into the Indies Choice Picture Book Hall of Fame. More than 4 million Pigeon books are in print in the US, with 13 foreign language editions around the world.

Review of Product:  I received a copy of Willem’s Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! as a shower gift and I’ve been reading it to Deven ever since. So I was excited to read another tale about the irascible Pigeon with him! With Duckling in the lead, Pigeon gets a lesson on manners, sharing and friendship – all things that kids need reminding about!

Giveaway: The folks behind this cool book have graciously decided to give two (2) lucky Nicole’s Nickels readers each their own copy of the book!
