Mo Willems is one of my favorite children’s authors. His books are so much fun not only for kids, but for adults to read too. Great characters, great stories, and just great expression!
Hitting shelves October 25 is the latest Mo Willems book, Nanette’s Baguette. This book is SO cute, and it’s really geared toward children ages 3-5, so while mine are a bit old for it, they both gathered round to read it with me and we had a lot of laughs. I love this Nanette. She’s my kind of girl!
Today is the day Nanette gets to get the baguette! Is she set? YOU BET!
Mo Willems’ hilarious new picture book, Nanette’s Baguette, follows our plucky heroine on her first big solo trip to the bakery. But . . . will Nanette get the baguette from baker Juliette? Or will Nanette soon be beset with regret?
Set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modeled French village, the uniquely vibrant laugh-out-loud world of Nanette’s Baguette may be Mo’s best creation yet. Get set to krack into an irresistible tale you won’t soon forget!
If it sounds adorable, it’s because it is. Take a look at the book trailer below:
NANETTE’S BAGUETTE by Mo Willems (10.25.16)
Fun, right? It gives you a feel for the setting which we love, but it’s the plot that is my favorite thing about this story.
My kids fell in love with this book and the silliness of it. The pictures are lively and engaging and seriously, Nanette is just so sweet. We had lots of laughs, and I love the books that make it easy to have a conversation about the plot with your children. This one is great for asking questions like, “What do you think will happen next?”
Can you guess what’s about to happen here? Oh Nanette. The self-control struggle is REAL, my friend.
