Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–Everyone's favorite pigeon is back with two titles for the board-book crowd. In Feelings, the Bus Driver tries to get Pigeon to make a happy face. Pigeon, of course, has other ideas. Words such as happy, sad, and angry stand out in bold colors. Things That Go! presents popular modes of transportation such as a bus, a train, an airplane…and a hot dog (A hot dog can ˜GO' right into my belly!) while Pigeon provides colorful commentary. Both books use the same style and color scheme found in the original picture books, with clean bright pages and simple thick-lined illustrations. Pigeon's fans will be excited to see this wacky bird and his friends again.–Julie Roach, Watertown Free Public Library, MA

Great books for kids of all ages!

The problem was that I was expecting the actual book, not a little board book that was alot shorter than the actual book.

Kids who love the Pigeon books will love this one also.

My young son and I are huge pigeon fans, having loved the first two books. When I saw that Willems was releasing two new pigeon books, I was very excited and ordered them immediately. Perhaps if I had waited, I would have seen that these are "board books," i.e. only a few "pages" long. Instead of a book demonstrating multiple pigeon emotions, as I expected, we touch on angry, sad, then happy, all in the course of less than a minute of (slow) reading time. I guess it's a cute enough book, but know that it is just a "smigeon of pigeon," not a full book.

This book is not as long nor as adorable as 'Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus,' which is definitely a favorite in my house. But I must say, this little board book *definitely* taught my 16 month old daughter about emotions. She loves when we read this book to her- and she copies the emotions that 'Pijja' (what she calls the pigeon) experiences- making sad faces, angry faces, happy faces along with the little guy. Even in this smaller, board book version (which is actually a much smarter purchase for younger toddlers than the hardcover books that they easily tear...) the pigeon is a character that small children can relate to, learn from... and as my daughter does, laugh with.

My students and I LOVE Mo Willem's Pigeon books (and all Mo Willem's books, in fact). I don't generally buy board books because my students are too old for them, but I thought I'd make an exception. I was disappointed. The book barely makes any sense because the pigeon's emotions are not nearly as clear as in any of the other books (which is ridiculous because this book is supposed to be about emotions).

Mo Willems delights again! Personnally a big fan of Pigeon, in particular the hot dog episode, I awaited "The Pigeon has feelings too!" with eagerness. And even though it is only a 5 or 10 page board book, with very little action; it's still a great book. The illustrations make it. Though I would certainly reccommend "The Pigeon finds a hot dog!" or "Don't let the Pigeon drive the bus!" first, this little book is worth checking out if you have very young children in the family.

And that's a good thing. His writing is surprising and inspired. His drawings seem simple but are filled with complexity and wit. And He respects the intelligence of children. I wish i could just sign up for a subscription service and get his new books sent to me as soon as they come out. Mo', Mo, please!

Mo Willems is a brilliant children's book writer and illustrator. All of his books are loved by my second graders! Consider this "board" book a good introduction to Pigeon for pre-readers and very early readers (kindergarten/pre-k and younger). As written on the cover, this is a "Smidgeon of pigeon by Mo Willems." Other Pigeon books are more appropriate (and more entertaining) for readers in grades K-3.

Tip for Teachers: Use this book to teach feelings and concepts of print to pre- and early-readers.

I read several of Mo Williams Pigeon books to a 3/4 grade ELL class, one at a time. The final one I read was this one, which fit in with their study of adjectives and adverbs that describe feelings. They used those words to discuss what feelings pigeon had in the different books I read to them. I left my books in the classroom for them, and they are the prize books to them to read when an opportunity arrives.

We do like Mo Williams in our house. We had the Knuffle Bunnies books and a couple with the Pig and Elephant but this was our first pigeon book. The fact that our daughter doesn't really gravitate towards Oscar the grouch should have been an indication that she wouldn't love the pigeon either. My biggest complaint is that we have some other feelings books and you can really see the feeling job off the page. This book falls flat with that.
