In this book Piggie attempts to cheer up Gerald (the elephant). Young children will be able to relate to this characters and to times when they felt sad or tried to comfort a sad friend. This book will help children to develop emotional literacy.

This is the first Elephant and Piggie book I have read but judging from the number of them at the library it will not be my last. The large text and familiar, reoccurring characters makes these great books for children who are beginning to read.

Gerald is sad and Piggie can't seem to figure out why! Piggie tries dressing up as a clown, a cowboy, and a robot but can't make Elephant happy. Then Piggie shows up as himself and Gerald is finally happy! This book has a small vocabulary and a lot of pictures to help children decode what the words may be.
