Here at the Smith house, we end every day with reading. While our seven year old has bookshelves full of titles to pick from, he has one special pile he keeps right next to his bed: Elephant and Piggie. Our collection may not be as big as some, but it’s growing all the time. And now, to celebrate 10 years of fun we have a few more!
That’s right – your favorite reading duo is turning 10! It’s also a great time to celebrate the newest release in the Elephant and Piggie Like Reading! series, The Good for Nothing Button by Charise Mericle Harper.
The Good for Nothing Button By Charise Mericle Harper (ages 4- 8)
Yellow Bird has a button. It does . . . nothing! It is a good for nothing button.
Red Bird and Blue Bird are excited to try the button. But when they press it, they discover that the button makes them happy. Happy is something! A flabbergasted Yellow Bird insists the button does nothing. But it sure does seem to be making him mad. Mad is something! The hilarious debate that follows takes readers on an emotional roller coaster that pokes at the power of imaginative play.
A Perfect Time For a Party!
We had so much fun creating our Elephant and Piggie 10th Anniversary Party. One of our favorites was creating these adorable paper lanterns that bring Elephant and Piggie to life.

Our party had so many things to see and do! But little E’s favorite was getting his new Elephant and Piggie books.
Ok… so he might have been a little excited about pushing the Good For Nothing Button too.
Elephant and Piggie have been a part of our family for many years now, bringing us laughter and lessons in equal measure. Piggie is Little E’s favorite (just don’t tell Gerald that!)
I thought for sure he would dive right into the pink and blue Elephant and Piggie cupcakes with temporary tattoo toppers. Nope! He was ready to color and more with his Elephant and Piggie activity pack. *Did you download your copy? Grab it via the download button at the start of the post ↑
