This post is written in partnership with Disney Hyperion. Disney Hyperion sent me a copy to check out and is partnering with me for a giveaway! Opinions are my own. Post contains affiliate links. 

Books are my favorites. Despite having shelves upon shelves of children’s books – I am still ALWAYS on the hunt for another great title. (Having “too many” books is just not a thing!)

We have been HUGE fans of Mo Willems ever since he tried to convinces us to keep the pigeon away from the bus! The Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! beginning-reader series created by Mo Willems, is fantastic for emergent readers.  Best friends Elephant and Piggie (stars of the aptly named Elephant & Piggie Series) introduce kids to their favorite books – brought to life in original stories created by contemporary children’s book authors and illustrators.

Author LeUyen Pham’s (illustrator of many incredible children’s books!) detailed and hilarious style is a perfect match for the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! series. The Mo Willems/ LeUyen Pham collaboration will have fans itching for more!

In The Itchy Book, itchy dinosaurs try to follow a very important, very prehistoric rule. A rule so important and so prehistoric, it’s written in stone. DINOSAURS DO NOT SCRATCH! Triceratops has an itch. . . so does Pterodactyl. . . and Brontosaurus. . . and T-Rex! But Dino-Mo reminds them all of the BIG rule: Dinosaurs do not scratch! What’s an itchy dinosaur to do? Find out in this hilariously charming beginning reader by author/illustrator LeUyen Pham.


My kids really enjoyed The Itchy Book – especially my kindergartner. She says it’s “SO funny and cute,” and she likes that she can read many of the words herself. As a parent, I loved the varied page lengths (books where EVERY page is lengthy can be tedious to read at bedtime!), fun characters, humor, and overall read-aloud-ability. This is a crowd-pleaser and will complement any reader’s collection.

I hope you’ll consider checking out The Itchy Book by LeUyen Pham as well as the entire Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! series. Happy reading!
