Read full description of the books:
Mo Willems is the antidote to the thought that you could write children’s novels. There is a subtle genius at play here. Usually the set-up is simple (sometimes almost painfully so). In the “Cat the Cat” minis, for example:
“Hi Sheep the Sheep! Time to sleep! Okay!” “Hi Pig the Pig! Time to sleep! Sure thing!” and on through giraffe, crab, horse, shark, and finally to the owl.
But it always sets up some humorous twist for an adult reader. The cat ends up asking the owl to sleep, and of course, owls are nocturnal. So the owl sits there while everyone sleeps, eyes wide open. Further, every page of this (at first glance painfully simple) story does have a picture of the animal in question doing something prepatory for bedtime: reading a book, taking a bath, brushing teeth, and so forth.
I find that even the at first ridiculous repetition “Cat the Cat… Sheep the Sheep…” is a nice tool to help children engage and start to learn to read. You can point to the words “Cat the” hold your finger over the second “cat", and the child knows what that has to say. In other words, each page does a surprising amount of work with the highest possible degree of efficiency.
