Chester W. Barrows School Library: Don't Let the Pigeon...

Don't Let the Pigeon....

Kindergarten students resonated with the Pigeon.  They have so much more sense than the Pigeon does!  And they really want the Pigeon to learn that he can't drive the bus, that he needs to learn how to take care of a puppy or a walrus, and that he needs to go to bed for a very good reason.


Written and illustrated by Mo Willems, the Pigeon shows us that we know more than we give ourselves credit for... at least, our Kindergartners do!

These are some Pigeon Books that are in the Collection here at Barrows School

All book descriptions are courtesy of Follett.
