Mo Willems visits Vancouver!

mo & me,MAOn Friday, June 10th , Mo Willems came to Vancouver, the only Canadian city he was visiting on his North American tour. Kidsbooks hosted the event and it was sold out within 24 hours so  it was a real privilege to get a ticket to see him. I got a front row seat! He is as entertaining in person as he is on video. He made everyone put their phones and cameras away because he really wanted the audience to be fully engaged and be in the moment. He read The Thank You book with so much expression and then read us the draft copy of his next book. I am not going to do a book spoiler but  to prepare you for it, get your mind thinking about all the words that end with ‘et’ and ‘ette’. Maybe brainstorm and make a list of words you know with those endings. This new book will be available next school year. After reading us the two books, he took a few questions and then signed books. At that point we could take photos. So here I am with Mo! I like to call it ‘Mo & Me!”. I also gave him Sarah L.’s journal entry about Elephant & Piggie being at the Seaforth Stampede Sports Day. After Mo reads it, I’m hoping he will take the time to contact Sarah or myself about it. Here is what she wrote:
