Can Mo Willems write a bad book? So far the answer remains no, he can't. This one finds Gerald asking himself a very important question: Should I Share My Ice Cream? Gerald being Gerald, he overthinks things with not so great results. Fortunatly Piggy arrives to save the situation. Sweet and perfect for summer, you will enjoy this book, no matter your age. ( )

An adorable story staring an Elephant and Piggie book by Mo Willems. Elephant over thinks on whether he should share his ice cream with his best friend and due to his over thinking, his ice cream melts. Luckily Piggie come along and shares her ice cream with Elephant. This book is an easy read and shows young children one way to be kind! The illustration is easy to look at and it flows nicely; with a simple background to showcase the main characters and their speech bubbles. ( )

5/5 Stars. Heart warming story. The pig and elephant are a great role models to show the importance of friendship and selflessness. While the elephant decides whether or not to share his Ice cream with Piggie, it begins to melt. He’s very sad to realize this when he decides to share the ice cream with Piggie. Piggie then shows up (with ice cream) and notices how upset the elephant an offers him some of the ice cream to “cheer him up”, the elephant realizes the generosity of the Pig and it showed selflessness goes both ways.
