Are You Ready to Play Outside? by Mo Willems (2008)

Beginning Reader, 60 pages

Gerald and Piggie have a day full of outdoor fun planned when their hopes are washed out by a rainstorm. Piggie is devastated, but inspiration comes from two small dirt dwellers that show the importance of friends and fun in any weather. The cover of Are You Ready to Play Outside? is reminiscent of a Dr. Seuss work, and with its large text, along with its simple yet effective illustrations, the book is sure to produce just as many laughs. Willems’ uncomplicated style creates a book that is great for a beginner to explore independently or to read to parents.
