For those of you who have never met Mo Willem’s pigeon, you’re in for a treat.
For those of you who know Mo Willem’s very naughty pigeon, it won’t surprise you that now he wants to stay up late. In fact, he’ll say anything to be able to stay up late. It’s up to you (and your students) to say “NO!”.
The book begins with a man who asks you to please do him a favor while he brushes his teeth. “Please do NOT let the pigeon stay up late.” Pigeon has other ideas. This is your chance to live your dream of becoming a (very) naughty pigeon. Kids love the role reversal of getting to tell you “No!” as you (the pigeon) give all the excuses they themselves would give to try to get you to let them stay up late.
This one had my students laughing out loud. They loved it. I hope you do too!
